What gifts and qualities do we seek in the next bishop of Missouri? Bishop Wayne Smith will retire in April of 2020, and in November of this year the Diocesan Convention will elect the next bishop of Missouri.
Holy Communion has three members on the committee to nominate candidates for the next bishop: Ilena Albarron, The Rev. Chester Hines, and Rudy Nickens. The committee is beginning their work with face-to-face conversations in every congregation. At the adult forum on Sunday March 10 (9:15am) Deborah Nelson-Linck, chair of the nominating committee will join us at Holy Communion. You will have a chance to have your voice heard in a listening session.
