Transition Committee being formed in the Diocese of Olympia

This information on the bishop transition is from the Diocese of Olympia.

The Joint Board for Bishop Transition is forming a Transition Committee of both clergy and lay people. They need to be the following:

  • Team players
  • Well-organized
  • Able to make a significant time commitment

There will be monthly Zoom team meetings and Zoom subcommittee meetings, as needed.

The Transition Committee will do the following as we walk through this process together:

  • Plan the meet-and-greets with bishop nominee candidates
  • Plan the electing convention
  • Assist in planning the consecration weekend, including the following:
    • Liturgy
    • Receptions
    • Other activities
  • Support the candidates and eventual bishop-elect

Following the election, the Transition Committee will assist the bishop-elect and their family as they transition from their current ministry to the Diocese of Olympia.

Particular skills essential to the committee include these:

  • Leadership
  • Oral and written communications
  • Proficiency with technology used in virtual meetings and document sharing
  • Hospitality and spiritual care
  • Liturgy planning
  • Event planning

The Joint Board will be accepting nominations beginning October 20. Watch for the announcement on the diocesan website.

Church of the Redeemer

Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
