The election of a Bishop is an event of major significance in the life of our diocese, and of the whole church. The office of bishop represents both the historical preservation and the present empowerment of ministry and mission in church and world. The bishop is also an important sign of unity and community for all the people of God.

We believe that God works with and through the actions and processes of human beings as they attempt together to understand and to be faithful to God’s call. Our nomination, selection, and election processes and procedures are tools through which we conduct our leadership discernment efforts.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells the Church and that God the Spirit will help us call forth a person to lead and to help us to order our individual and communal spiritual lives, in this diocese, at this point in our history.

As we move prayerfully through these discernment processes, we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to show love and care for those with whom we come into contact. We will seek to be open to the issues and concerns of all our members; we will endeavor to be pastoral and personal with all who may be nominated at whatever point in our procedures.

We earnestly request the prayers of the diocese as we move through this challenging and hope-filled period in the life of our diocese. - The Standing Committee of the Diocese of Nevada
