Episcopal Diocese of Dallas Clergy Conference Recap

Last week I attended the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas Clergy Conference at Camp Allen. We gathered for worship, lectures, and free time to share best practices and life in general. It is a blessing to have an annual opportunity like this.

At the end of the clergy conference, Bishop Sumner shared that he would be asking the Standing Committee to begin the process of electing a Coadjutor Bishop. On Monday, the Standing Committee sent a letter that began:

“On Wednesday, April 17, Bishop George Sumner called for the election of a bishop coadjutor for the Diocese of Dallas. Our bishop coadjutor will serve alongside Bishop Sumner until he retires, and then succeed him as our eighth diocesan bishop.

The electing convention will be held on Saturday, May 3, 2025 – two weeks after Easter – at a time and location to be announced.

This week, the Standing Committee unanimously appointed Father Clayton Elder to serve as chairperson for the Search Committee. As the outgoing President of the Standing Committee, his continued work in this new role will ensure a seamless continuation of the election process.”

If you would like to read the Standing Committee’s entire letter, as well as the letter from Bishop Sumner, you can easily access them on the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas website, or by clicking HERE. We want to ensure that you are well informed and included in this process, so I will post additional updates periodically in the months ahead."
