Congratulations to the Diocese of San Joaquin’s own Dr. Bill Atwood for being elected a member of our national church’s Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is a group that meets each month to prepare the national church’s budget and oversee the administration of the church between meetings of the Provincial Council, so a little like a vestry for the national church.
Dr. Bill Atwood has been a member of Christ Church in Oakhurst since 1980 and has served in a large number of roles, from choir member and Sunday school teacher to acolyte director and senior warden. For 39 years he worked in public education, both as a teacher and as an administrator. He has his master’s degree and doctorate in education administration and he serves as an adjunct professor at Fresno Pacific University.
Please join us in keeping Bill in prayer as he embarks on this new ministry!
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with Bill and all those who take counsel in the Executive Committee for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach them in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide them to perceive what is right, and grant them both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
