Welcome to the College for Bishops
The College for Bishops provides a community of formation and education for newly-consecrated, active and retired bishops of the Episcopal Church, assisting them to better serve as leaders in God’s mission. This virtual college is a program of The Episcopal Church and is a resource of the House of Bishops’ Office of Pastoral Development.
The mission of the College for Bishops is to provide opportunities for education and formation that will strengthen bishops in their personal lives, as diocesan leaders in God's mission and in their vocation to God as a community of bishops in service to the Episcopal Church.
The College for Bishops continues to focus on formation and education opportunities grounded in historic Christian “doctrine, discipline, and worship” while being responsive to newer ways and means to share that information in changing times.
Prepare for upcoming meetings and explore past meeting minutes, documents, and information.
The need for well-formed, faithful and equipped bishops is still the goal, and the College for Bishops mirrors the Church’s historic way of reaching it.
