Nomination for elected office

Why run?

There are several elected positions of leadership in our diocese. We seek nominees for these positions that are broadly representative of diocesan demographics. Advances in technology have made it possible for people of all areas of the diocese to serve without the time and expense of traveling to commission meetings. Prayerfully consider if God is calling you to serve in a position of leadership in our diocese!

How do I run?

The list of positions of elected leadership can be found here.

Our diocese practices self-nomination. If you have found a position that you would be interested in running for, please fill out the nomination form below. The absolute deadline for nominations is October 29, 2021; however we request that nomination forms be submitted prior to September 29. Nominees will be expected to attend (virtually) the Nominee Forum to be held during the Pre-convention Meeting on Wednesday, November 3, 2021.

If you have any further questions about any of the positions or the nomination process, please contact Nominating Committee chair Jon Boss at
