Deans & Regional Presidents

The Deans of the 16 regions of the Diocese of Virginia are appointed by the Bishop and are the Bishop’s representatives in each region. Together with the Presidents of the regions, they lead their regional council in ensuring the ministrations of the church area available to all persons in each region. The Archdean works with the Bishop to plan Dean's meetings and to support the ministry of deans.  

The Presidents of the 16 regions of the Diocese of Virginia are elected by each Regional Council. Each Regional Council is composed of members elected by the churches within each region. The Presidents work with the Deans of each region to convene the Regional Council and ensure the ministrations of the church are available to all persons within the region. Regional Councils also elect representatives to the Executive Board.
