Hearing heard a desire and need for more clergy collegiality, in November 2019 Bishop Reddall asked the diocese to embark on a two-year trial period of a deanery structure. Deanery meetings are to take place five times per year. The deaneries replace the previous clericus gatherings.

The six deaneries are listed below. The “Zoom” deanery consists of our most rural congregations. Those clergy in the Zoom Deanery will also be invited to join the closest deanery for a face-to-face fellowship if they desire. Due to the pandemic, Bishop Reddall has extended this structure through 2022.

The Role of the Dean

  • Convene five annual clergy meetings: September, November, February, March and May.
  • Facilitate conversation/program as necessary.
  • Attend, and encourage other deanery members to attend, the Celebration of New Ministry services within the deanery.
  • Provide a channel of communication between deanery members and the diocesan office and bishop about regional concerns, needs and hopes.
