North Central Jurisdictional Episcopal Elections

North Central Jurisdictional Episcopal Elections

June 22, 2022

Jurisdictional Conferences have been scheduled for November 2-5. The North Central Jurisdictional Conference will be held in Fort Wayne, Indiana. During this conference, we will be electing Episcopal leaders for the 2022-24 completion of this quadrennium.


Any Elder in full connection is eligible to be elected as a bishop. If you are discerning a call to this ministry, the Iowa Conference delegation would love to be in conversation. You can reach out to Rev. Katie Dawson , Rev. LaTonya Calderon or Nitza Dovenspikefor more information. You can also reach out to our Iowa members of the North Central Jurisdiction Committee on Episcopacy: Rev. Dr. Barrie Tritle and Erica Shannon Stueve

We also invite all clergy and laity in the Iowa Annual Conference to be in prayer for our episcopal leaders and those discerning. If you see a call to this ministry in one of your pastors or colleagues, we ask you to consider having a conversation with them!
