Read carefully the instructions associated with this initial screening tool. These instructions are in place to ensure that all candidates are evaluated solely on their responses to these questions without regard to gender, race, familial status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or any other identifying characteristic.
To protect this initial screening process we are invoking a blind screening of your responses, and we ask that all applicants answer these questions without providing any identifiers to the above. Please refrain from using examples that include pronouns or descriptive language that would divulge any personal characteristics. Your responses will be separated from the other parts of your application (cover letter, resume, and references) and assigned a unique number that will correspond to this application packet. The Bishop Nominating Committee looks forward to providing prayerful consideration to your application. You will be contacted by mid-November.
May God bless us all in our mutual discernment.
