Discernment of a Call to a Synod Bishop

Discerning the Call of a Synod Bishop

In preparation for the nomination and electing of a bishop at June’s Synod Convention, Synod Council encourages congregational councils, synod delegates, congregations, individuals, and groups, to engage in a discernment process which includes biblical reflection, prayer, and conversation.  What are the qualities God would choose in a leader? What are key roles in leadership according to scripture and the experience of the faithful over millennia? And what evidence is there that God prepares the people as well as the leader to be led into faithfulness and mission?

This discernment is a spiritual process for a spiritual people pursuing a spiritual practice.

A process is provided in documents which are available here.
