Greg Rickel serves as Bishop Diocesan. He was elected in May 2007 and began his time as bishop on Sept. 15, 2007. He very much enjoys the outdoors and is especially grateful to have been called to serve in this beautiful diocese. He also loves reading, his family and serving the people of the diocese. Since his arrival he has focused on three main areas of ministry for our future: congregational development, people 35 and under, and stewardship of all of our resources.
