From the Bishop Search Committee: Our Covenant with You
The members of the Bishop Search Committee, mindful of the trust that has been placed in us, have adopted two covenants: one a set of group norms to guide our working relationships with each other, and the other, a set of promises to you, to the candidates, and to the wider church. As you hold us in prayer, know that we are seeking, daily, to be faithful to the commitments we have made to you.
