Bp. Waggoner to Assist in Nev.

The Rt. Rev. James Edward Waggoner Jr., Bishop of Spokane from 2000 to 2017, will serve as Assisting Bishop in the Diocese of Nevada. Waggoner will continue living in Spokane and will assist in Nevada on a quarter-time schedule.

Waggoner’s assisting in Nevada is part of the diocese’s discernment after it postponed an election scheduled for November 2018 with a three-person slate.

“Bishop Jim will commence his tenure with us on Monday, April 1, 2019, and continue until the election of the 11th Bishop Diocesan of Nevada. (This may be extended until our eleventh bishop is consecrated),” the Standing Committee wrote in announcing his appointment.
