Standing Committee

The Standing Committee, meeting at least twice a year, serves as a confidential “council of advice” to the bishop. When there is no bishop, the Standing Committee is the ecclesiastical authority of the diocese. It must approve the sale or encumbrance of property, gives consent for elections of bishops, and approve candidates for Holy Orders.

The Diocesan Council’s mandate is to carry out the program and policies adopted at our Annual Convention; administer and (if necessary) modify the budget; review diocesan programming; initiate, develop, consolidate or terminate work in the diocese; and prepare programs and budgets for presentation to the next convention. Regional representatives to Council are also charged with communicating with and reporting on their region and hosting the pre-convention meeting in that region.
