Louisiana Delegation Seeks Episcopal Nominations

July 14, 2022

The Louisiana Annual Conference Delegation has begun a process of discerning episcopal candidates from Louisiana for potential endorsement by the delegation at the South Central Jurisdictional Conference, November 2-5, 2022.

A candidate for bishop must be an active ordained United Methodist elder in good standing with at least four years to serve as bishop before reaching the mandatory retirement age of 68.

Nominations should include the name of the clergyperson, his/her current ministry setting, and a brief rationale explaining why someone believes this person has the gifts and graces to be an effective episcopal leader. 

Self-nominations are not being accepted.

All nominees will be prayerfully considered by the delegation. Those chosen as candidates will be invited to participate in a further discernment process that includes answering written questions and a possible personal interview with the delegation mid-August 2022. At that time, one or more candidates may be chosen for endorsement.
