The Rev. Canon Jason Alexander, D. Min.
Canon to the Ordinary, Diocese of Arkansas
"Rooted in my love for adventure, a metaphor I have developed as canon is that of an expedition leader. This is the leadership style I would carry forward as bishop, strategically equipping and guiding a diverse group of individuals and communities of faith along the path that began for each of us at baptism."
The Very Rev. Jennifer Andrews-Weckerly
The Very Rev. Rob Courtney

"Throughout my ordained ministry, I have been blessed to witness the transformative power of faith, the strength of community, and the resilence of the human spirit. I am fully dedicated to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of The Episcopal Church, and I am committed to helping to build a vibrant community of Christian Disciples in an inclusive, compassionate, and spiritually nurturing environment."
The Very Rev. Walton Jones
Rector, The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, Starkville, MS
"I believe I have gifts that would be valuable in many contexts. However, it's my deep love for the Diocese of Mississippi and its people that has led me to accept this nomination. Our diocese is capable of incredible things with God's help, and I believe our loving and inclusive tradition is what many people are seeking in our increasingly divided world."
The Rev. Dr. Dorothy Sanders Wells
Rector, St. George's Episcopal Church, Memphis, TN
"At heart, I am a reconciler and collaborator who seeks to bring God's people together to help better understand God's will for our lives and the ways in which we best show our love for God and neighbor, as we have been commanded."
