Slate of Nominees for Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh

Slate of Nominees
The Standing Committee is pleased to announce that the following people have been formally nominated to stand for election as the Next Bishop of Pittsburgh at the Special Convention on April 22-23, AD2016 at St Stephen’s Church, Sewickley. 
We ask everyone to pray for these nominees and to pray for our diocese.  The Nominees are now in the process of producing written materials.  We pray that the Holy Spirit will assist the Nominees as they answer questions about themselves and their ministry experience.  Standardized, written materials will be published shortly after Easter (March 27, 2016).  In the meantime, we ask everyone to recall the theme of our discernment process:  Prayer, not politics; discernment, not a search.
These nominations are the result of a de-centralized discernment process that involved all clergy and lay deputies in seven local districts and one combined non-SWPA district.  Each district nominated three names to stand for election.  More background information about the process is available at
