Open Position as UTO Representative for Province I

Province I seeks a Representative to the United Thank Offering Board. Along with loving God and neighbor, the ideal candidate will have been involved with the United Thank Offering as a parish and/or diocesan UTO Coordinator and have a passion for this ministry.

This position is elected from the Province I Episcopal Church Women's (ECW) meeting, which was held last September. No one stood for election and the position will become vacant in July; but, a candidate can be appointed by the Executive Committee of Province I ECW at any time to fill a vacancy.

  • The term is for one triennium from the end of General Convention 2015 through the end of General Convention 2018; an additional term may be served.
  • This is a working board and some travel is required in addition to electronic meetings and a commitment of time between meetings.
  • Travel and meeting expenses of board members are paid within the guidelines of The Episcopal Church.
  • The Province Representative is both a member of the UTO Board and a liaison to their province, communicating with and assisting each diocese in their province. Board members also serve on internal UTO Board committees during the triennium. 
  • UTO grant applications are read by all Board members; for the past several years about 1.5 million dollars was ingathered and awarded annually.  
  • All Board members promote the ministry of thankfulness through daily thank- offerings and the twice a year parish/diocesan ingatherings.

Please share the position description and nomination form with anyone you think might have the interest and passion for the United Thank Offering ministry of thankfulness to God and Global Mission.
