On November 20, 2017, we paused our search process until January 2, 2018 at which point the amended Profile would be shared. After much prayer and discernment, the Profile for XI Bishop that was published in October has been revised and is available for prayerful consideration. We are now accepting new applications for XI Bishop until January 10. Current applicants, should they choose, may revise and resubmit their essays during this 8-day period.
The sections of the Profile that were revised were:
- Who We Are: Present - pp.3-4
- How We Listened: Survey & Listening Meetings - pp.7-8
- The Bishop We Seek - pp.17-19
