The list of voting members is arranged alphabetically by member (last name, first name).

“Class” indicates whether the voting member is a lay person or a member of the ordained clergy. Additionally, if the the individual is on retired status, it is noted. It is also noted whether they are serving an interim appointment or an ecumenical appointment.

“Congregation” indicates the congregation that enfranchised the voting member (regardless of whether that was by election within the congregation or some other method of appointment); the synod constitution does not specify by what method a congregation enfranchises voting members. In some cases, a voting member is enfranchised through some other entity, e.g., synod council members, pastors in specialized ministry on the roster of the synod, etc.. These are noted under the “congregation” header.

“City” is required to distinguish between congregations with the same name. In the case of Synod Council members, either the office or the seat (e.g., Potomac Conference) is listed under this header.

Errors on the list should be reported promptly to the Synod Office by emailing Bishop Riegel ( prior to the Synod Assembly. Once at the synod assembly, report any errors to the chair of the Registration Committee (Beverly McDonald).
