The Synod of Alberta and the Territories is currently divided into five conferences. Each of these conferences is headed by an elected Conference Dean, which are listed below.
The role of the Conference Dean is to assist the Bishop in the duties of installations and pastoral care of the ministers and congregations. The Deans and the Bishop meet at least once a year for spiritual renewal and to discuss programs, plans and problems affecting conferences and the Synod.
