The XV Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina
Upon the retirement of the Right Reverend Gladstone B. “Skip” Adams III as Provisional Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina in December 2019, the Standing Committee announced in a letter on January 23, 2020, that they had voted to move forward with the process that will lead to the election and consecration of the 15th Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina.
In the absence of a Bishop, as outlined in ARTICLE IX, Section 2 of the Constitution of the Diocese, the Standing Committee is currently acting as the ecclesiastical authority of the Diocese. The current President of the Standing Committee is the Reverend Canon Caleb Lee.
As the search for the next Bishop continues, the current timeline projects that an election for the XV Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina will be held at the diocese's 230th Annual Diocesan Convention in November 2020. Find more information on the search at the Bishop Search website.
