Diocesan Council

TBTS Diocesan Council delegates

TBTS Diocesan Council delegates

Diocesan Council is the annual family reunion of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of West Texas. Your delegates this year were Del Welborn, Suzanna Reeder and Walt Kleine. Take a look at some of the videos. I especially commend the Bishop’s Address and The Rev. Becca Stevens’ video.

We will be having conversations about the topics of Diocesan council during the Sunday 10:10 “In Between” time. Walt, Suzanna, Del and I will be guiding the conversation and considering how to respond to Diocesan Council and Strengthen our ties to the wider church.
