2022 SEJ Conference Information →


Every four years, elected clergy (pastors) and lay (local church members) delegates from the US Annual Conferences meet together for a Jurisdictional Conference to vote on business matters and to elect ordained elders to be Bishops for the church. (All five Jurisdictional Conferences happen simultaneously.)  Once elected, a Bishop will be appointed to oversee an Episcopal Area within that Jurisdiction.  An Episcopal Area is made up of a part, a whole, or multiple Annual Conference areas. There are 13 Episcopal areas within the Southeastern Jurisdiction.
