Elected positions within the convocation
Dean and Warden
Together, the Dean and Warden gather the convocation, draft agenda meetings, appoint convocation council members, and provide oversight and leadership that drives the convocation's mission and ministry. The Dean and Warden are elected at the Convocation's Annual Meeting. Any cleric in good standing serving within the convocation is eligible to serve as Dean, and any baptized and confirmed lay person in good standing worshiping within the convocation may run for Warden.
Diocesan Council Member
Diocesan Council serves as the Bishop’s Executive Committee and is the legal entity of the Diocese.
Any cleric in good standing serving within the convocation may run for Council, and any baptized and confirmed lay person in good standing worshiping within the convocation may run for Council. The Convocation elects one cleric and two lay persons, all for two year terms.
Mission and Ministry Council Member
Much of the work of the Mission and Ministry Council will be defined by the Convocation, but the primary purpose of the Mission and Ministry Council is to drum up excitement for the Diocesan Vision- Mission and guide the execution of the plan through the Convocations. Any cleric in good standing serving within the convocation may run for Council, and any baptized and confirmed lay person in good standing worshiping within the convocation may run for Council. The Convocation nominates one cleric and one lay person.
