Devon Anderson, chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Nominations. “This triennium the nominating committee is focused on reaching out across the church to networks, advocacy groups, bishops, deputies, and other church leadership for referrals and recommendations so our slates may more fully reflect the church’s extraordinary diversity of gifts, culture, and experience.”
