How to Elect a Bishop: A Primer
The 2016 NIS Assembly will be tasked with the responsibility of electing a new synod bishop. This workshop will review the election process from the first “ecclesiastical” ballot, through opportunities for nominee speeches and questions to the nominees, all the way to the final ballot. This is a great workshop for Assembly Voting Members, pastors who may think God is calling them to the Office of Bishop, and anyone else interested in the process.
Presenters: Shirley E. Anderson, Northern Illinois Council member, Transition Team /Election Process, Election Chair Synod Assembly and Transition Team Members
