After prayer consideration of the many applications received, the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Michigan has selected the Search and Nomination Committee. Membership on this Committee is limited, by diocesan canons, to a maximum of 14, with equal representation of clergy and lay members required. This limitation means that many applicants with strong qualifications could not be selected. However, there will continue to be a wide variety of opportunities in this two year Episcopal transition process where all can contribute their gifts and talents.

With deep gratitude for this diocese's willingness to be part of the process of episcopal transition,
The Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan has selected:
