The three nominees are:
- The Rev. Mark Cowell, priest-in-charge of Holy Nativity, Kinsley, and vicar of Sts. Mary and Martha, Larned, KS
- The Rev. Mary J. Korte, rector of St. Stephen’s, Wichita
- The Rev. Jonathan Singh, clinical manager of St. Leonard’s Hospice, York, England
More information about the three nominees is available through a seven-page document posted on Issuu, which follows.https://issuu.com/theepiscopaldioceseofwesternkansas/docs/2018_canidate_bios2
