I often come back to the words of St. Irenaeus, “the Glory of God is a human being, fully alive,” and strive to be a leader that calls out and nurtures the gift of others. At the same time, I am also not afraid to be directive, to hold people to account, and to give and ask for constructive feedback. More and more in my leadership, I find myself asking those around me, “what am I not seeing" and "what are you hearing." I seek to listen and consult in order to take definitive action when necessary.
Bishop-elect Anna Greenwood-Lee was elected September 26, 2020 to be the 14th bishop of the diocese of Islands and Inlets. Her consecration will be held on January 30, 2021. Until then, the Very Rev'd Ansley Tucker (dean and incumbent at Christ Church Cathedral) remains as diocesan administrator, with all of the authority of a diocesan bishop.

Nominees for election were asked to prepare a short video about themselves; not only as a priest or a bishop, but as a person.
