Each year Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr. awards a Bishop's Award to a layperson, or laypersons, that have demonstrated outstanding service both in their local church and beyond the local church. Service beyond the local church may be in the annual conference, the general church, the local community or beyond. He invites lay and clergy of the California-Nevada Conference to lift up people deserving this recognition. Deadline for submission is March 31 and should include a short narrative on how the person is living as a disciple engaged in transforming the world and those qualities that bring the nominee forth as a leader. These nominations should be limited to one or two pages. Remember, their service must include both service in the local church and beyond the local church. Submit nominations to: Bishop Warner H. Brown, P.O. Box 980250, West Sacramento, CA 95798, or email@example.com.
