Top 7 Things to Know about the Bishop Nominee Walkabouts

Are you ready? The nominees for the 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri will be here Nov. 4-7 and you’ll have four opportunities to meet and hear from them about their vision for our diocese. Here’s a handy list of things to know.

  1. We have three nominees. In alphabetical order, they’re the Rev. Stacey Fussell, the Rev. Deon Johnson and the Rev. George Smith.

  2. We know their backgrounds. See videos from each nominee and read about their backgrounds on the diocesan website.

  3. Four days of walkabouts. Walkabouts run Monday through Thursday: Nov. 4, at Christ Episcopal Church, Cape Girardeau; Nov. 5, Trinity Episcopal Church, Central West End, St. Louis; Nov. 6, Calvary Episcopal Church, Columbia; and Nov. 7, St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, Creve Coeur. More details here.

  4. The format. After a brief refreshment period, attendees divide into separate rooms. They stay seated as each nominee rotates through each room for a Q&A session.

  5. Written questions only. We will accept written questions from attendees submitted on notecards provided at the outset.

  6. The introductions. Each nominee will have a few minutes to introduce themselves before the Q&A starts.

  7. The discernment. Remember, we’ll have a chance to discern something about the nominees—but they’re also discerning something about us!
