Now Receiving Candidates for Episcopal Nominee

October 02, 2019

The Iowa delegation of the North Central Jurisdictional Conference has the pleasure of presenting an Episcopal Nominee to the 2020 Iowa Annual Conference. This process involves receiving names of possible candidates now through October 31, 2019.  

On November 1, 2019, those candidates will then receive the “Episcopal Nominee Information” form and the “Episcopal Election Covenant” which will be due by November 30, 2019. 

In January 2020, candidates will be asked to interview with the delegation at which time one candidate will be chosen and presented to the Iowa Annual Conference for endorsement.
