Thank you for participating in our search for the next bishop of Georgia. Forms are available below for nominations and applications. We are receiving nominations/applications until 5:00pm on June 7.

Nominations: We invite you to nominate a priest or bishop in good standing with the Episcopal Church of the United States of America who is under the age of 72.

Applications: If you believe that God is calling you to the ministry of Bishop of Georgia, we invite you to apply below.

After submitting your application, please email the following to bishopsearch@gaepiscopal.org: your cover letter, resumé or CV, and OTM profile, along with your answers to these three questions (in a total of four to six pages):

What moments or events in your discernment have persuaded you that you might have a vocation to the episcopate?

What specifically draws you towards that vocation now in the Diocese of Georgia?

What does it mean for you to walk in the way of the cross?

Petitions: Following the release of the slate of candidates, qualified individuals may be added to the slate by petition. Petitions must be signed by one clergy person and one lay person from each of the six convocations of the diocese. Each signer may sign a petition for only one candidate.
