Call to the Episcopacy
During these unconventional times, it requires unconventional leadership. These are my foundational principles that guide my call to the Episcopacy in the United Methodist Church:
As faithful followers of Jesus Christ, we must be those bearers of fruit, such as LOVE, HOPE, and JOY, while also bearing the fruit of attending to the least, lost, last, and voiceless to ensure there is lasting change in the world; it is in this that all will know that we are Christ’s disciples.
