On November 9, 2019 Russ Hale was consecrated as the newest Bishop in The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches at Sanctuary Church in Tulsa, OK. It was a beautiful service in which six of the Communion’s bishops (two of which were founding bishops) participated and Presiding Bishop Quintin Moore served as the chief consecrator. It was a deeply moving time. Please continue to keep Bishop Hale in your prayers to live out this calling with fidelity and courage.
Bishop Hale serves as the endorsing agent for the CEEC Chaplaincy Program that oversees the military and civilian chaplains serving our Armed Forces.
I am both humbled and excited to be in this place at this time: Humbled because of the calling I’ve received from the Father and also because of the faith & trust placed in me by some spiritual giants in our Communion; and, secondly, excited because of the great things happening in building His kingdom. -Bishop Russ Hale.
