The Wisconsin Delegation to the 2016 General and Jurisdictional Conferences continues to meet regularly to prepare for those quadrennial denominational gatherings. At its April 16 meeting, election of the Wisconsin members of the 2016-2020 North Central Jurisdiction Committee on the Episcopacy was completed.  Tom Popp will be serving as lay member, succeeding current member Diane Odeen. Amanda Stein will continue as Wisconsin’s clergy member for a second quadrennium. The Delegation has begun establishing the criteria and process for determining whether there will be an endorsed candidate for election as a bishop at the July 2016 North Central Jurisdictional Conference. Recommended names of Wisconsin clergy to consider as possible episcopal candidates will be requested by the Delegation in late summer 2015. Delegation members will also be conducting individual listening sessions with the Conference boards and agencies.
