September 30 deadline nears for nominations for Presiding Bishop
The Episcopal Church Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop (JNCPB) calls attention to the September 30 deadline for the Call for Discernment and Profile for the election of the 27th Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church.
Before the September 30 deadline, any member of The Episcopal Church may submit a name of a bishop to JNCPB whom they believe should be considered for nomination through the email listed in the Call for Discernment and Profile. JNCPB will inform bishops whose names have been presented and advise them that if they wish to engage the discernment process, they must submit their materials as specified in the Call for Discernment and Profile between October 1 and October 31. The JNCPB will announce its nominees in early May 2015.
According to JNCPB, the Call for Discernment and Profile is intended to paint a picture of the skills, qualities and gifts the Church seeks in its next Presiding Bishop in light of what the Church may look like in the next decade, to assist bishops, deputies and prospective nominees in discerning which bishops may be called to the ministry of Presiding Bishop and to assist JNCPB in discerning potential nominees.
