Leadership Team


The governing body of the province is the Provincial Synod, which meets every three years, bringing representatives from each member diocese together to take action on items of interest to the dioceses in the Midwest. Between Synod meetings the Executive Board handles the business of the Province.

The Executive Board consists of elected officers and diocesan representatives appointed by their bishops and approved by their Standing Committee. Their work is supported by an employed Coordinator.
