We are grateful for everyone who extended themselves for consideration to be members of this Committee.There was a deep pool of highly qualified applicants. We gave serious consideration to the many thoughtful submissions.

We ask that the ECMN community pray for the Search Committee: its work, its members, and its course over the next weeks and months.

Additionally, we are happy to announce that the website for the bishop search process has launched. You can find it at: https://mnbishopsearch.org/ . The bishop search site will be a one-stop shop for information about the committees and process, updates, resources, and eventually the ECMN profile and the bishop search application. It will be updated regularly as the process unfolds.
Faithfully,

The Rev. Debbie Brown, President
Ms. Laura Bathke, Vice President

The Rev. Justin Chapman
Mr. Chris Commers
