A direct application to be considered as the next Bishop of Nevada may be filed by any Priest in the Episcopal Church who meets the canonical requirements, which are outlined in the Nomination / Application Packet. Suffragan Bishops are eligible as well as Diocesan Bishops or Bishops Coadjutor of a Diocese for which they have served at least five years. The materials required for making application and how they are to be filed are all included in the Nomination / Application Packet, which can be downloaded from the link below.
The Petition Process is designed to replace "Nominations from the Floor" at Convention. It will not begin until the candidates selected by the Search Committee have been announced. When the Petition Process is opened (sometime in July) the same questions and background checks will be required of these candidates. Our timeline will have the date as soon as it is set by our Standing Committee, and detailed instructions will be provided at that time. It will require a greater number of signatures in order to demonstrate support for this person around the Diocese. All potential candidates are encouraged to become either a "Nominee" or an "Applicant," as described above, rather than entering through the Petition Process. However, all final candidates will be considered equally by Convention Delegates in October.
