In preparing for the 112th Annual Diocesan Council, to be held at the McAllen Convention Center, McAllen, TX on Feb. 18-20, 2016, the diocesan Nominating Committee is developing the roster of nominees. The related web subpages WILL contain the offices to be filed with job descriptions along with the Episcopal Church Canons and the Diocesan canons that apply. A full copy of the Constitutions and Canons of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas is available at the Bishop Jones Center or on the diocesan website at: www.dwtx.org.
The Nominating Committee is seeking the names of those individuals who may be called to serve in a variety of offices for the Diocese. They invite your participation in this process through steadfast prayer, and by the raising up of faithful, skilled leaders from within your own congregation. Those who feel called to potentially minister in this capacity, and whose names are submitted, will be considered for nomination and possible election to the various offices which will be filled by the 2016 Diocesan Council.
Click here for an Online Biographical Form to make nominations. This form can be completed on screen, saved to your hard drive using “save as”, and e-mailed. The text fields have character limits, but if needed a supplemental page may be included. Once complete, nomination forms should be signed and submitted to Laura Woodall in the Bishop’s office along with a digital photograph (.jpg format). Nomination forms are due back by November 1, 2015. (firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 210.824.1312)
When encouraging people to submit their names for nomination please remind them that their willingness to share their leadership skills is vital to the ministry and mission of the Diocese. Please also remind them that this is a discernment process, thus not all names will make the final ballot. However, individuals may be nominated from the floor of Council.
Thank you for taking the time to see to this process. With your help, we can present a good slate of nominees for election at Diocesan Council and continue to provide strong, faithful leadership for the Diocese of West Texas.
