Critical Information: 2019 Assembly Voting Members
In accordance with our policy for the preliminary identification of a bishop, a special meeting of each conference will be held in January of 2019. (Click here for schedule.) The voting members of the upcoming Synod Assembly shall be asked to consider a set of questions developed by the Synod Council designed to recognize the conference’s understanding of this synod’s mission, the issues deemed important for this synod, and the gifts desirable and necessary in a bishop. In order to have full engagement in this process, congregations should identify their 2019 Assembly Voting members by January 1. If congregations are unable to identify voting members by January 1, they are encouraged to send their 2018 voting members to the first conference meeting. Please note that our synod office does not need to be notified of your voting members prior to assembly registration which opens on March 1, 2019.
