Candidates for Standing Committee

Nominee: Kurt Cook

Nominated by: debi Kuwada

Congregation: All Saint’s Episcopal Church (SLC)

Statement of Nomination: 

Kurt has been a member of the Diocese since 2002 and has served on the Standing Committee for the past two years. During that time he participated in Standing Committee/Diocesan Council visitations to St. Jude’s, Spirit of the Desert, St. David’s, St. Francis’, St. Michael’s, St. Peter’s and the Sudanese Congregation at All Saints. After worshipping with each community he visited, he spent time after each service getting to understand each group and to learn about what they felt was important in the life of the Diocese.  He found joy in connecting with others in the dioceses and visiting our historical sites.  This visitation program came to a sudden halt with the pandemic. Kurt has been a positive and active contributor in the progress of our current New Bishop Search and would like to continue with that process to its conclusion.  He has also expressed a strong desire to continue visitations to each parish connecting Standing Committee with our dioceses.   His knowledge of our Episcopal history here in Utah has also added to Standing Committee’s  growth and understanding of who we are and our rich history here in Utah. Kurt is willing and able to server as your representative on Standing Committee.
