The Diocese of Texas is ready to receive applications for Suffragan Bishop of Texas. May 20 is the deadline to apply. The new bishop will succeed Bishop Dena A. Harrison, will be based at the Austin Diocesan Center, and will oversee churches in the western region of the diocese.
The process differs from past nominations in the diocese’s history of recent decades, and will allow for online applications without requiring nomination from a third party. After consulting with the Rt. Rev. Todd Ousley, Bishop for the Office of Pastoral Development, the standing committee designed an open process and a wide search.
The diocese has created a webpage that provides the job description, the timeline, and application forms.
