TWO EPISCOPAL ELECTIONS IN NEJ 2016 CONFIRMED
The 2016 General Conference supported a legislative petition that keeps all jurisdictions at their current number of resident bishops and calls for a study during this upcoming quadrennium. The Inter-Jurisdictional Committee on Episcopacy also supported retaining nine resident bishops in the NEJ this quadrennium even though their recommendation was not offically acted upon by the General Conference. The adopted Episcopal Fund budget for 2016-2020 supports nine resident bishops in the NEJ, so the Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference in July 2016 will elect two new episcopal leaders.
Persons exploring nomination or persons endorsed by Annual Conferences or approved ethnic caucuses can find the biography forms on the NEJ website's Episcopal Candidates Information links below the Rules information - CLICK HERE.
With late Annual Conferences this year, please review materials in advance if you are a potential nominee and note important June 20 deadline.
