Prayers of Discernment

Understanding that congregations pray for such events in different ways, it seemed appropriate that we offer a variety of prayer resources for the election of our future Bishop. 

The “Prayers of Discernment” booklet below contains material, collected from different worship resources, that is intended for use in public worship, prayer, small or large groups, and individual devotions.

2023 Nominations Materials: Deadline to Submit is May 1

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. At our 2023 Biennial Mission Convocation in Oklahoma City, NALC delegates will elect a Bishop, as well as members of the Executive Council and Court of Adjudication. In preparation for this important election, the Executive Council has provided congregations and potential Mission Convocation delegates with informative materials. You can find everything here. 

The deadline to submit nominations materials is May 1, 2023.

If you have questions, please email [email protected]. May the Lord guide you as you pray, discern, and discuss how your congregation and delegates will be involved in the upcoming NALC Mission Convocation.

Peace and blessings,

The Executive Council & the 2023 Nominating Committee
