The Gathering of Leaders is an organization that is comprised of peer-nominated individuals. Any participant may nominate a fellow member of the clergy if he feels that person would be an asset to our participant members and would also benefit from attending a Gathering.
Once a person is nominated, a member of the Gathering of Leaders Steering Committee personally reaches out to the nominee's bishop for a conversation. Upon acceptance to Gathering of Leaders, a formal invitation to participate will be sent by our Executive Director.
We would like for you to document, as best you can, your nominee's demonstrated proven leadership,
and/or what creative work they might be doing whether or not they are in charge of a congregation. Keep in mind our Gathering of Leaders' selection criteria for nominees:
Criteria: Young leaders of proven ability who will continue to grow in leadership, centering on our core
values, including diversity.
Please include as much information as you are able at the time that you submit this form. At a minimum
we need an email address for the nominee.
Please take a moment to describe why you are nominating this individual to be a future member of
Gathering of Leaders. Describe their successes as you are able, their leadership skills, and their creative
work they are doing in the church.
