The Wisconsin Conference Delegation has had a tradition of inviting input from United Methodists across the state as to whom it might consider to endorse as episcopal candidates for the upcoming Jurisdictional Conference. Therefore, we invite any Wisconsin United Methodist who would like to nominate an Elder to be considered for endorsement by the Delegation to please send the clergyperson’s name, along with a brief explanation of why you believe they would make a good bishop, to Don Cramer, the Delegation Secretary, by October 1, 2019.  

This information can be emailed to Don at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or mailed to him at 2611 N Pierce St., Milwaukee, WI 53212.

At its October 6 meeting, the Delegation will evaluate all suggested names based on a list of qualities developed to assess and evaluate bishops and potential candidates.  Nominees invited to continue on in the process will be invited to interview in person with the full Delegation on November 17.

Please continue to hold the Delegation in prayer as we go through this discernment process and prepare for the approaching General and Jurisdictional Conferences.  Thank you.

Lisa King
Delegation Chairperson
