Once they are selected, this section will be populated with all of the information synod delegates need to read and inwardly digest about the candidates for election.

Given the short time-frame to review these materials, it will be critical that delegates download the documents and set aside considerable time to read the materials carefully and view the videos before meeting with their other parish delegates. If delegates in your parish do not have access to the Internet, please assist them in whatever ways necessary for them to participate fully in this process.

This Episcopal Ministry document outlines, at a high level, for synod delegates, nominators and nominees the roles and responsibilities of a bishop and should be carefully considered by each.
