Additional Search Information

How You Can Help

  • Consider the desired traits of the tenth bishop as described in the diocesan profile.
  • Pass the word.  Send an email or a note to your Episcopalian friends in other dioceses announcing our search and urging them to visit the diocesan website.
  • Do you know someone who fits the description?  If so reach out to that person with an invitation to review the diocesan profile and other material on the diocesan website.  With that person’s approval, make a nomination.
  • Pray the prayer below.


As we continue our search, the Standing Committee asks that each congregation
pray this prayer at every Euchartist:

Loving God, raise up for the Diocese of Montana a shepherd who will lead with compassion, with courage and with comprehension of the needs of all your people, that we may be led by a bishop who is committed to ministering from the mountains to the plains, from cities to rural areas always remembering the poor, the marginalized and those with no voice.  This we ask in the name of your Son, Jesus, in the unity of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
