Commission on Ministry
A Commission of Ministry (Commission) is mandated by the Canons of the Episcopal Church (Title III. Canon 2). Consisting of Priests, Deacons, and Lay Persons, the Commission is charged with the implementation of Title III, to assist the Bishop Diocesan in the determination of present and future opportunities and needs for the ministry of all baptized persons, and in the design and oversight of the ongoing process for recruitment, discernment, formation for ministry and the assessment of the readiness of persons for ordained ministry. Appointment to the Commission is by the Bishop.
The Diocese of West Virginia’s ordination process is currently being reviewed. If you’re interested in entering the discernment process, please contact the Rev. Kim Webster.
