The direct effect that the global pandemic has had on our United Methodist Church is what has brought me to be in relationship with all of you. I will continue to serve both the California-Pacific Conference and the Desert Southwest Conference during this interim period.
I greet you one last time as your bishop in the name of Jesus Christ, our Shepherd and Savior!
We give thanks to God for God’s faithfulness, and we give thanks for Bishop’s Bob’s ministry with us. And in joyful anticipation, we will welcome our new bishop on October 1, 2021.
