Regional Disciplinary Board

If there is a case involving potential clergy misconduct, the Regional Disciplinary Board is the pool of individuals from which are selected to serve as members of a Conference or Hearing Panel.  The Title IV canons seek to provide for appropriate and transparent accountability when clergy have committed some sort of misconduct.  It also seeks to be built upon a model of reconciliation and healing, as opposed to confrontation. 

The Regional Disciplinary Board was created at the 204th Diocesan Convention in 2020, which replaced the former Diocesan Disciplinary Board (consisting of nine members, 5 clergy and 4 lay) with a 13-member body (7 clergy and 6 lay) comprised of one lay and one clergy representatives from each of the following contiguous Dioceses: Northwestern Pennsylvania, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Southern Ohio, West Virginia, and Western New York.  Each Diocese has elected one lay and one clergy member with an initial term of one, two, or three years which were assigned shortly following the election of all members.  The thirteenth member (clergy), the Rev. Brad Purdom, Canon for Congregations in the Diocese of Ohio, was be selected by the Bishops of the six Dioceses.

There are no regular meetings.

The Episcopal Church has developed a website that describes in detail the priest disciplinary process:
