Convention Booklet 2024 FINAL (01-22-2024)

105th Annual Convention

The Rev. Allison Caudill, St. Mark’s, Clifford & Massies Mill, Grace I have had the privilege to serve St Mark's, Clifford and Grace, Massies Mill since 2021, and in that time we have learned a lot together about the needs and experiences of small parishes and what God is calling us to do in this new season of Church history. I believe that what we've learned is important for the work of our Diocese and the wider church, and I would be honored to represent the smaller and more rural communities of our Diocese on Standing Committee. I currently serve as Secretary of the Trustees of the Funds Board, co-convener of Amherst Refugee Ministries, and am an active participant in the ministries of the Lynchburg Convocation.

The Rev. Scott West, Christ, Blacksburg The Diocese of Southwestern Virginia has been my home for the past 16 years, during which I have served as Rector of Christ Church, Blacksburg, a little more than half of my ordained life. During my time in this diocese, I have served on a variety of boards and committees, including a previous term on the Standing Committee, and currently serve for the second time as the Dean of the New River Convocation, the Diocesan Historiographer, a member of the Southwestern Virginia Episcopal Fund, and as a member of the Commission on Ministry and chair of the Board of Examining Chaplains. I believe I have the ability to see viewpoints and issues from a variety of perspectives and work collaboratively with others.

The Rev. Karin MacPhail, St. Elizabeth’s, Roanoke I would welcome a chance to serve on the Standing Committee of our diocese. I have been a priest for 19 years, and I've served as rector of St. Elizabeth's for the past six years. I currently serve on the Commission on Ministry and Trustees of the Funds in this diocese. I have served as President of Trustees of the Funds, served a term on the board of the Southwestern Virginia Episcopal Fund, and was elected to serve as a General Convention Deputy. Before coming to this diocese, I previously served both small and large parishes in the Diocese of Virginia.
