The Convention of the Episcopal Church in East Tennessee meets annually to conduct the business of the diocese. It elects diocesan leaders; ratifies a budget; accepts resolutions; hears the bishop’s annual address, handles business related to diocesan entities, and in the year before a General Convention, it elects a deputation to General Convention. It is also a family gathering of folks across our diocese. Clergy and elected delegates participate in our convention – visitors and exhibitors are welcome!.
