PB nominating committee seeking input

PB nominating committee seeking input

The group charged with nominating the next Presiding Bishop is soliciting comments to specific questions prior to its next meeting on March 18.

From the Office of Public Affairs:

[The Episcopal Church Joint Nominating Committee for the Presiding Bishop (JNCPB)] will hold its second meeting at the Barbara C. Harris Camp & Conference Center in Greenfield, NH, March 18-20. The agenda includes developing a timeline and methodology for soliciting vision and feedback about what the church of the future will look like and what qualities the next Presiding Bishop should possess to help get there.

Invited guests include Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori to reflect on the state of the church and the vocation of Presiding Bishop; and Bishop Clay Matthews, Officer for Pastoral Development, to discuss best practices in bishop searches.

JNCPB invites reflections, especially before its March 18 meeting, on any or all of the following questions:

Whether searching for a rector or a bishop, what was the best thing you did in your process?

Whether searching for a rector or a bishop, what was your best communications tool? To candidates or to constituents?

What would you recommend we avoid?

Anything else you want to share with the committee about your search process?

Also, the members of JNCPB request prayers for this next phase of their process.

Here is the roster of members of the group.
