In the coming weeks, the nine conferences of our synod will be meeting to discern and nominate candidates to be our next bishop. We are members of the El Camino Real Conference of the Sierra Pacific Synod, which includes the churches of the South Bay, Monterey Bay, and parts of the Central Valley, and we have offered to host our Conference gathering. The 26 churches of our conference will gather at CGS on Saturday, June 3, from 11-3pm.
We will worship together, have lunch, and then discuss who we would like to nominate to stand for election at our Synod Assembly in September. We may nominate up to five pastors, and if they accept their nominations, they will go through a screening process and be asked to provide additional information about themselves before the official vote takes place this fall. This pre-assembly nomination process has been put in place to help ensure that assembly voters are able to make a faithful and informed vote.
There are three ways that CGS members are invited to be a part of this process:
We hope you’ll consider supporting our broader church by participating in this conference!
