Nominations are now open for lay and clergy positions on the Board of Trustees, Standing Committee, Diocesan Council, and Trinity Cathedral Chapter.

About each Governing Body:

  • Board of Trustees (3-year term; one clergy and one lay position open) acts within bounds set by the Bishop, the Convention, and the Standing Committee to steward the investment and endowed funds entrusted to the diocese.
  • Standing Committee (4-year term; one clergy and one lay position open) is the body of lay and clergy members that serves as the Bishop’s Council of Advice. The Standing Committee advises the Bishop and gives consent in matters of the disposition of property, ecclesiastical discipline, the election and consecration of Bishops, and in the matter of candidates for ordained ministry.
  • Diocesan Council (3-year term; two clergy and two lay positions open) is the body of lay and clergy members of the diocese authorized by the canons of the diocese to “administer the missionary, educational, and social service work of the Church.” Diocesan Council oversees the creation of a budget each year to carry out this work.
  • Trinity Cathedral Chapter (3-year term; one clergy or lay position open) helps to facilitate communication between the diocese and the Cathedral, to seek alignment between Cathedral and Diocesan vision, and to ascertain ways in which the Cathedral congregation and other congregations of the diocese may relate in positive and helpful ways.

Please use the form linked below to nominate either yourself or someone else. Nominations are due by June 30.
