Deadline Nears for Bishop's Award Nominations

March 03, 2011

March 30 is the deadline for 2011 Bishop's Award nominations.

Bishop's Awards are presented each year at Annual Conference Session "in celebration of the work and service of lay people within the California-Nevada Annual Conference."
Nominees should have demonstrated "outstanding service" both within their local church and beyond the local church (in the Conference, General Church, or community setting).
Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr. outlined the guidelines in a letter mailed to clergy and lay leaders last month. The guidelines stipulate that a 1-2 page narrative be submitted, detailing how the nominee "is living as a disciple engaged in transforming the world, and those qualities that bring the nominee forth as a leader among us."
Send nominations to: Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr., P.O. Box 980250, West Sacramento, CA 95798.
Nominations are kept confidential and recipients are not announced until the presentation of awards at Annual Conference Session in June.
