Call Responsibilities of the Sierra Pacific Synod Bishop
The call of a Bishop is a specific role. The job description is defined in the Synod Constitution (S8.10 - S8.15) and in the Churchwide Constitution (10.81.01). While the priority of each of these responsibilities can be navigated, the responsibilities themselves are non-negotiable and are required of our next Bishop. There are pastoral leadership responsibilities as well as executive administration responsibilities.
As you discern candidates for the next bishop of Sierra Pacific Synod please consider all the responsibilities and recommend Rostered Ministers who can embody these responsibilities confidently with the help of God.
