The Pre-Assembly Forum scheduled for April 15th has been CANCELLED due to inclement weather & unsafe driving conditions.


Welcome to the website of the 2018 Bishop Election of the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin! As we begin the search for our next bishop, it is important that we stay connected.

We have officially entered our time of Pre-Assembly Discernment. Thank you to everyone who provided names for pre-identification. The biographical information of the ten pre-identified ELCA ministers of Word and Sacrament who desire to continue in this process were posted here on Friday, March 16, 2018. It is important to note that these are NOT nominations. Voting members of the synod assembly will be asked to nominate any ELCA minister of Word and Sacrament on the first ballot of the election.
