Attend your Pre-Convention Deanery meeting during the next few weeks to become familiar with the business to be completed at Diocesan Convention on November 11-12.
There are five deaneries in the diocese; see which deanery your congregation is in, and click the name of the deanery below for the names of current officers. Here are their meeting dates:
Meeting: Sunday October 16 after the 10 am service at the Episcopal Church of Wise County in Decatur (approximately 11:30 am)
Meeting: Sunday October 16 at 2:30 pm at St. Luke’s in Stephenville

Meeting: RESCHEDULED for Thursday, November 3 at 7 pm at St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Keller

The revised canons passed at the 2015 Convention changed what offices are elected at the deanery level. This year, members of the congregations in the deanery will elect the following positions during the Pre-Convention meeting:
- One representative (lay or clergy) to the diocesan Executive Council
- One alternate for Executive Council representative
Each of these positions is a one-year term.
Other members of the Executive Council will be elected at large at Diocesan Convention. Nominees are listed here.
The meeting will also cover materials to be discussed or voted on at Convention. All Convention-related materials are posted on the Convention page and available to view, download, or print as soon as they become available. You can also try out the online voting platform we’ll be using for elections this year at convention. Feel free to contact the Diocesan Office at 817-534-1900 if you have questions or need help accessing any of the materials.
