Episcopal Nominations

Posted: June 22 2022 at 10:57 AM

As you might be aware the North Central Jurisdictional Conference (NCJ) will be held in Fort Wayne, Indiana, from November 2 - 5, 2022, during which we will elect Episcopal leaders.

Two forms are available for any clergyperson who wishes to declare their candidacy, in addition to those who already declared their intention for the original 2020 NCJ Conference.
