SEJ Conference 2016: Advocate coverage

Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference 2016, set for July 13-15, is the jurisdiction’s quadrennial gathering. Every four years, each annual conference in the SEJ comes together at Lake Junaluska to elect five new bishops, approve the budget for the next four years and conduct general business. South Carolina has elected 32 delegates (16 clergy and 16 laity) plus four alternates who vote on these matters.
