Rev. Debbie Wallace-Padgett Elected Bishop
Dear Friends and colleagues,
It is my joy to share with you that Rev. Debbie Wallace-Padgett was elected to the office of Bishop Wednesday afternoon at Lake Junaluska. It was so great to see her welcomed to the stage by Bishops Davis, Gwinn, King, Morgan and Spain. I know that you will be in prayer for Bishop Wallace-Padgett and Lee and Leanndra and Andrew during this time of transition. Also keep the folks at St. Luke in your prayers as they grieve the loss of their beloved family and anticipate a new pastor coming in the weeks ahead. And finally I would covet your prayers for Bishop Davis and the Cabinet as we deliberate in the coming days.
Rev. Mark B. Girard
