Deans serve as the bishop’s representative in a limited geographical area called a deanery or cluster. There are 17 such clusters in our synod. Deans provide pastoral care to rostered leaders in their deaneries and facilitate good communication between the bishop’s office and the congregations in the cluster. Pastor Jill Henning, Trinity, Lilburn, GA, coordinates the work of the deans.
