Spring 2024 Virtual Assembly
April 12-13


Keynote Speaker: National Chaplain, 
the Rev. Lynn Carter-Edmands

The Rev’d Lynn Carter-Edmands has over thirty years of leadership experience as a priest in parish and diocesan ministry. This experience includes congregation and clergy transitions, vocational discernment and mentoring, formation and leadership development, and mediation and conflict transformation. Mother Lynn concluded eight years as a member of the Bishop’s staff in the Diocese of Southern Ohio as the Canon to the Ordinary. She has served as the rector of two parishes and as a chaplain and teacher at a boy’s boarding preparatory school where she taught Bible, Ethics, and senior electives in religion.

Mother Lynn is certified in Transitional Ministry through the Interim Ministry Network and in the Appreciative Way and recently completed a year as the transition priest-in-charge of St. Alban’s in Bexley, OH. She volunteers as a member of the Board of Directors of Healthy Congregations, Inc.


This summer she will return to General Convention as a deputy from the Diocese of Southern Ohio and also as a member of the Legislative Committee concerning Title IV Disciplinary Canons. Lynn is married to the Rev’d Frank A. Edmands II, also an Episcopal priest, and they live in the Columbus, OH area.

Mother Lynn has described herself as “an outgoing and encouraging leader committed to living and sharing the good news of Jesus to build up the body of Christ for our life in the world, offering my gifts and experience as a priest to bring out God's best in others as they bring out God's best in me.” She considers herself blessed to have been appointed as national chaplain to The Order of the Daughters of the King and to be able to work alongside National President, Nancy Severin, and other leaders in the Daughters' remarkable ministry of prayer, service, and evangelism. She is very much looking forward to being with the Province V Virtual Spring Assembly this April as keynote speaker.
