Conference Deans

The conference deans assist the bishop with providing pastoral care and leadership to the congregations and rostered personnel of the synod.

The Conference of Deans meet at least twice annually with the bishop and synod staff to coordinate the work and meetings of the conferences and consult on issues to be brought to the attention of the conferences.
