St. Mark's will be hosting the conversation.

In November, 2017, the Annual Convention of the Diocese consented to the call from Bishop Shannon Johnston and the Standing Committee to elect a second Bishop Suffragan. The new Bishop will become the third member of an episcopal team that includes Bishop Susan Goff, who also serves as a Suffragan.

In consultation with Bishop Johnston, the Standing Committee named a Search & Nominating Committee, whose members hope to announce a slate of nominees by early fall. After the slate is announced, additional nominees could be named through a petition process, according to guidelines to be developed later this year.

Please keep the members of the Search & Nominating Committee in your prayers as they discern God’s call for service in His kingdom.
