Debatable resolution Debatable Resolution 1 Proposed by Ray Wheeler, St. Thomas the Apostle, Overland Park Resolved, that no changes be made to either the Diocesan Constitution or Canons until one of two conditions occur: 1) the 10th Bishop of the Diocese of Kansas is consecrated, or 2) the Ecclesiastical Authority (i.e., Council of Trustees in the absence of a sitting Bishop) approves a long-term strategic plan for the Diocese. EXPLANATION: A committee appointed by the Bishop has the responsibility, according to the Canon IV.2, Of Apportionments, Section 5, to review the Canon IV.2 at least every ten years. The Canon does not mandate any changes to the Canon. Changes to the Constitution or Canons seem premature, given the absence of a Bishop to guide the Diocese of Kansas. One may anticipate that the 10th Bishop of Kansas will bring new ideas or different direction for the governance of the Diocese, which may require changes to either or both the Constitution and Canons.

Amendment to the canons of the diocese Note: Language to be removed is in strikethrough; language to added is in italics. Canonical amendment 1 Proposed by the Council of Trustees CANON IV.2 Of Apportionments Sec. 1. The Convention of the Diocese of Kansas shall adopt an apportionment for each parish of the diocese for the amounts necessary to pay for the missionary work of the Church, and program of the diocese and the support of the Episcopate as determined by the Annual, or any Special, meeting of the Diocesan Convention. Sec. 2. It shall be the duty of the treasurer of each parish to remit on the last day of each month to the Treasurer of the Diocese one-twelfth of the annual Diocesan Apportionment approved for that parish by the Diocesan Convention. A report shall be made to the Bishop by the 5th day of each month showing the amounts paid by each congregation toward its apportionment. The Bishop and Trustees may take such action as they deem appropriate concerning any congregation that fails to pay its apportionment regularly and on time. Sec. 3. a. For purposes of this Canon, the following definitions shall apply: (1) Normal Operating Income: That is that amount reported in “Box A” on the annual Parochial Report required by the General Canons of the Episcopal Church. There shall be excluded from Normal Operating Income any contribution to a fund, or payments to retire debt incurred to expand or update the facilities of a congregation in order to fulfill the mission of the Diocese of Kansas to make disciples. A congregation that wishes to have a fund or a debt so excluded from Normal Operating Income must submit its plans to its respective Convocation Board for recommendations to the Council of Trustees of the Diocese. (2) Average Normal Operating Income: Average Normal Operating Income is defined as the average of the Normal Operating Income for the latest three (3) years of record. b. If any parish shall demonstrate decreasing annual income during each of the latest three (3) years of record, Diocesan Apportionment shall not be calculated upon the Average Normal Operating Income, but upon the parish’s anticipated Normal Operating Income for the year following the last year of record, based upon the parish’s budgeted income for such year subject to approval by the Trustees. The amount of anticipated Normal Operating Income shall then be used in place of “Average Normal Operating Income” for calculation of the parish’s apportionment as set forth in Section 4 of this Canon. Sec. 4. For the purposes of the Diocesan Apportionment: a. Each parish shall be assessed at (i) a base rate of 12% of the first $50,000, or fraction thereof, of its Average Normal Operating Income or for its last year of record Normal Operating Income, whichever is less, (ii) a base rate of 15% of the next $50,000, or fraction thereof, of its Average Normal Operating Income or for its last year of record Normal Operating Income, whichever is less, and (iii) a base rate of 18% of that portion of its Average Normal Operating Income or for its last year of record Normal Operating Income, whichever is less, which exceeds $100,000. b. The base rates as stated above in this section shall be increased or decreased by the same proportioned amounts expressed in percentage as may be necessary in order that the amounts assessed against all parishes be sufficient to fund the budget approved by the Diocesan Convention, provided that no parish shall be assessed an amount exceeding 20% of its Average Normal Operating Income for its last year of record. c. Those parishes which have due and outstanding extraordinary apportionment based on previous canon are still responsible for that apportionment. Sec. 5. This Canon shall be effective for funding budget year 2006 2018 and shall be reviewed at least every ten (10) years by a committee appointed by the Bishop.

Amendment to the canons of the diocese Note: Language to be removed is in strikethrough; language to added is in italics. Canonical amendment 2

Proposed by the Reverend Torey Lightcap, Canon to the Ordinary CANON IV.13 Of the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest Sec. 1. The corporation known as the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest (“ETSS”), organized and existing as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the state of Texas, is hereby recognized and designated as an institution of the Diocese of Kansas. Sec. 2. The Diocese of Kansas shall be represented on the Board of Trustees of ETSS by lay and clergy members in accordance with the Bylaws of ETSS. EXPLANATION Canon IV.13 is a “vestigial” element of the canons of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas. It reflects a time in which the various dioceses of Province VII of The Episcopal Church were considered, or at least considered themselves, to be “owning dioceses” of the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest. Throughout the years in which this canon was considered to be in force, certain persons helped to fulfill at least a portion of its terms, including Winnie Crapson, Jesse Milan and Bishop William E. Smalley, who all faithfully served periods of service to the seminary’s Board of Trustees. Their support (and likely the financial support of participating dioceses) generally helped the enterprise of theological education and formation. Nevertheless, the seminary has been a fully owned and controlled entity of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas since January 1952. It is organized as a non-profit corporation domiciled and legally existing in the state of Texas. Its organizational documents, specifically the Articles of Incorporation and bylaws, as amended, recognize that the Seminary is an instrumentality of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. It is wholly controlled by a Board of Trustees, whose current chair ex officio is a Bishop Suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. There are no other outside interests with controlling authority. Entitling the Seminary of the Southwest as an Institution of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, if followed out under provisions for Institutions under Canon IV.1 of diocesan canons, would create impossible legal and fiscal obligations from the diocese to the seminary and vice-versa. In light of these facts, and since there is otherwise no particular or special relationship between these two entities under which it would be wise to study the canon prior to repeal in view of extending it, now is the time to repeal it.

Proposed 2018 Mission Plan, Narrative

The Episcopal Diocese of Kansas proposed 2018 mission plan Sources of Resources

The proposed 2018 mission plan for the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas is funded primarily through apportionment. Apportionment accounts for 77.1 percent of the resources to fund the 2018 mission plan. The remainder of the funding is provided by investment earnings (12.2 percent), and fees and other income (10.7 percent). The proposed apportionment for 2018 of $1,394,467 compares to previous years as follows: 2017 $1,394,844 2016 $1,411,314 2015 $1,404,568 2014 $1,403,737 2013 $1,380,577 2012 $1,317,321 2011 $1,353,342 2010 $1,357,596 2009 $1,365,000 2008 $1,329,562 The proposed effective apportionment rate for 2018 will depend on whether or not the proposed change to the apportionment canon is adopted. If the proposed change is adopted, the effective apportionment rate is 16.97 percent. If the proposed change to the apportionment canon is not adopted, the effective rate will be 17.50 percent.

Uses of Resources

The 2018 mission plan continues to make use of the endowment to help fund the mission plan. The projected draw on the endowment for 2018 will be 5 percent. 2018 $1,724,093 2017 $1,794,681 2016 $1,805,293 2015 $1,808,798 2014 $1,744,447 2013 $1,606,169 2012 $1,874,248 2011 $1,862,745 2010 $1,798,885 2009 $1,928,963 2008 $1,797,338

Proposed 2018 Mission Plan, Narrative Adult Formation

For 2018 there will be continued emphasis on Education for Ministry (EFM) training and mentoring. The Diocese of Kansas has been deeply involved in EFM and has as many or more graduates than many dioceses of comparable size or larger. In 2017 the diocese conducted one EFM mentor training session.

Bethany Place

Upton Hall Conference Center is being utilized more than in the past. The 22-bed conference center serves students enrolled in the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry from the dioceses of Kansas, West Missouri, Nebraska and Western Kansas. It also hosts monthly meetings of the Council of Trustees and is available for use by parish organizations, agencies and select community organizations. Items associated with Bethany Place are the utilities, supplies, maintenance and upkeep of the grounds.

Bishop Kemper School for Ministry

Four years ago the Diocese of Kansas entered into a formal partnership with the dioceses of West Missouri, Nebraska and Western Kansas to create the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry. This initiative continues the diocese’s historic commitment to forming lay leaders, and bivocational priests and deacons for ministry. BKSM is overseen by a board of directors with representatives from all four dioceses. In the fall of 2017, BKSM began using newly renovated space in Grace Cathedral, which was provided by the diocese from funds raised through the Crossroads campaign. The Diocese of Kansas is being asked to continue its commitment for 2018 in order to help pay the salary and benefits for a full-time dean, the Very Rev. Don Compier, as well as for partial tuition for students from the Diocese of Kansas, as determined by the dean of BKSM.

Campus Ministry

The Rev. Betty Glover was hired in 2017 as the Campus Missioner. Two interns will serve the diocese and assist the Campus Missioner. For 2018 one of the interns will have an enhanced role in development at the KU Canterbury House.

Clergy Support

Clergy Support encompasses important functions for the clergy of the diocese. The functions under Clergy Support include: • Gathering of Presbyters • Deacons Gathering • Archdeacons • Convocation Deans • Chrism Mass

Commission on Ministry

The Commission on Ministry (COM) is required by Title III of the Constitutions and Canons of the Episcopal Church. The Commission on Ministry is charged with finding persons who can best fill the ministry needs of the diocese; thus, a vocational discernment process and program have been established. COM works in the discernment process not only with candidates but also with convocation discernment committees. 10

The Episcopal Diocese of Kansas...a branch of the Jesus Movement • The 158th Annual Convention


Proposed 2018 Mission Plan, Narrative As advisors to COM, the Examining Chaplains are responsible for reviewing the General Ordination Examinations of seminarians.

Communications

This area includes the cost of printing, labeling and mailing The Harvest, the diocesan quarterly magazine, as well as producing the diocesan Directory and Convention Journal provided to all clergy and parish offices. It also includes expenses related to the Office of Communications. This office, headed by Director of Communications Melodie Woerman, also is responsible for the diocesan website and the biweekly electronic newsletter DioLog. The director also oversees diocesan social media channels, as well as printed communications for the bishop’s office, and is available to consult with parishes on communication issues, including website development, digital evangelism, and print and digital publications.

Community Life

This area includes items related to meetings that incorporate aspects of our common life as a community of faith. Included are the expenses for the annual Diocesan Convention, as well as the escrow for the General Convention.

Congregational Development

In 2016, Debbie Kremers was hired as Missioner for Transitions. In that role she assists parishes in the search process. $20,000 has been allocated to assist St. Paul’s, Kansas City, with its Mission Enterprise Zone. The amount provided by the diocese will be matched by a grant from the Episcopal Church to help carry out ministry in Kansas City. In 2013, in an effort to help St. Margaret’s, Lawrence, recover from its very high mortgage debt, the Council of Trustees authorized the diocese to take out a loan to pay off St. Margaret’s debt. In turn, St. Margaret’s has agreed to pay all their apportionment, plus pay the diocese back for this loan over a 30-year period. The amount the diocese is paying on the loan per year, $110,907, is listed under expenses of Congregational Development, while the amount St. Margaret’s is repaying the diocese, $25,724, is listed in the income section of the mission plan.

Council of Trustees

This part of the 2018 mission plan provides for the monthly Council of Trustee meetings, the Council’s annual retreat and other Council expenses.

Liturgy, Arts & Music

The mission of the Liturgy, Arts & Music Commission is to support the congregations in the diocese, that we may better celebrate our life in Christ through worship. The commission continues to work with the diocesan office on ordination liturgies for priests and deacons, and assists with planning worship for the Diocesan Convention.

Proposed 2018 Mission Plan, Narrative Mission Management

The salaries and benefits of all clergy and lay employees of the diocese have been grouped in this section. The operations and facilities expenses of the diocesan office are included in this area. Among major items in this area are retiree health insurance, computers, utilities, maintenance, property and liability insurance, and the annual audit. In early 2018 the diocesan office will occupy space in the new building adjacent to Grace Cathedral, which currently is under construction thanks to funs raised through the Crossroads campaign. The estimated additional costs of the new building have been reflected in this mission plan.

Mission and Outreach

The Diocese of Kansas continues to be a strong supporter of the wider church. Once again, the 2018 mission plan provides for the full asking to support the work of The Episcopal Church. You may note that the asking from the wider church decreases in this mission plan. This is the result of the final planned decrease in the asking that was approved at the 2015 General Convention. Funding by the diocese to support the Sustainable Development Goals is included in the mission plan. Areas supported by Mission and Outreach are: • Episcopal Church Apportionment • Province VII Apportionment • Episcopal Community Services in Kansas City • Episcopal Social Services in Wichita • Bishop Seabury Academy in Lawrence • Episcopal Migration Ministries-Wichita • Anti-Racism/Disability Awareness Training • Sustainable Development Goals

Office of the Bishop

With the departure of Bishop Wolfe, this portion of the mission plan is significantly different from 2017. There are only three areas under the Office of the Bishop. The first section includes all costs associated with the search for a new bishop. Under this line item are projected costs for the Search and Transition Committees, costs associated with the assisting bishop, Council of Trustee costs associated with the bishop search, and election costs. In addition, the Council of Trustees has proposed adding to the mission plan an escrow account for costs associated with the search for the 11th bishop of Kansas. The Rev. George Wiley will continue to serve as Canon Pastor for 2018.

Office of the Canon to the Ordinary

The Canon to the Ordinary is the chief administrative officer for the diocese. The canon also serves as the deployment officer for the diocese.

Proposed 2018 Mission Plan, Narrative Seminarian and Curate Support

As part of investing in our future, the Diocese of Kansas provides assistance for future priests of the Episcopal Church. Twice a year the diocese provides grants to those from our diocese attending a residential seminary. The diocese also partners with specific parishes to provide internship experience for new clergy. However, there were no parishes that were able to participate in the curate program for 2018.

Stewardship and Development

The Stewardship and Development Committee works to provide resources and services to the parishes of the diocese. The Rev. Art Rathbun is currently working in the area of stewardship and development.

Youth Ministries

Karen Schlabach has been faithfully serving the diocese as youth missioner. The work performed in this area of the mission plan helps lay the foundation for future lay leaders and priests in the Episcopal Church. A new program, MissionWichita, has been added. These are some of the successful youth events planned for 2018: • Miqra • Happening • New Beginnings • Summer MegaCamp • Fall Fun Fest • YouthTide • Girls Only/Guys Only Retreat • Summer Event Rotation

Proposed rules of debate 1. Whenever possible, speakers will be called in alternating order of their positions on the issue under consideration. 2. Speakers will be limited to two (2) minutes on an issue under consideration, except that: a) A speaker may speak again to any amendment, with a two (2) minute time limit again applying; and b) A speaker may answer questions of information. 3. While motions to call the previous question (close debate), limit debate, postpone to a set time, postpone indefinitely or commit are acceptable at any time, the motion will be effective only after all speakers already at the microphone have had an opportunity to speak. 4. Items such as courtesy resolutions may be placed on a consent calendar to be voted as a group. a) The consent calendar(s) shall be prepared by the Committee on Dispatch of Business and distributed to the Convention. b) The consent calendar is not subject to debate. c) An item or items may be removed from the consent calendar at the request of any delegate, providing that at least two other delegates join the request. The removal of one or more items from the consent calendar is not subject to a vote. d) Items so removed shall be voted upon separately and are subject to debate. Explanation: A convention is a gathering of the community of the church in this place. Communities that are functional listen to one another and give each person an opportunity to speak. These proposed rules of debate are designed to advance our life at this “community reunion.� Some items will be judged by the Committee on Dispatch of Business to be items on which delegates are in full agreement. These items, such as courtesy resolutions, will be placed on a consent calendar. However, should a delegate feel that an item deserves either debate or comment, that item may be removed from the consent calendar as provided for above. In all our discussions, we seek to know Christ and to make Christ known.
