The process for electing a bishop for the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin in 2020 was established by the Synod Council, as called for in the synod’s constitution. It began with Town Hall meetings in January and February, resulting in a profile of the synod and of the bishop we seek. Nomination caucuses were then held in each conference, beginning with ecclesiastical ballots by all participants. The process then shifted to the Bishop Call Committee, which was charged with the responsibility of presenting to the synod for election four to six nominees.
This page contains the full report of the Call Committee, detailing the process they followed to arrive at their decisions.
This page also contains a video introduction from each of the nominees and written material each has submitted. The nominees are listed below alphabetically by last name.
Forums will be held prior to the assembly at which an election will be held. Because of the pandemic, the date for that assembly has yet to be set.
