Bishop Search

As faithful Christians, Episcopalians and members of The Diocese of West Missouri, we have begun the search for our next bishop. Previous bishops have guided us into a deeper understanding of faith. We pray that God now will lead us to find a bishop who will help us grow from who we’ve been and who we are to who God is calling us to be.
