The Diocese of Ohio is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion represented in the United States by The Episcopal Church.
The Episcopal Church of Ohio ministers in our Church and in our communities in many inspiring ways.
Clergy and lay members elected to this position serve at the 81st General Convention or any Special General Convention between their election and the election of their successors.
At Convention, the deputies consider amendments to the church’s constitution and canons, resolutions on ecclesiastical matters and social issues, adopt a budget for the ministry of the Episcopal Church, and elect people to various national offices. Clergy members must be canonically resident in the Diocese; lay members must be adult communicants in good standing of the Church in the Diocese.
The 81st General Convention will be held June 23-28, 2024 in Louisville, Kentucky. Deputies will need to be available to attend during those dates. Deputies are also expected to attend deputation meetings held in preparation for General Convention.
