At General 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 hold elections to various offices in the wider church, including in 2024 a new Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church.
