Episcopalians nominate new provisional bishop for South Carolina

From South Carolina (ENS)-

Leaders of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina have nominated the Rt. Rev. Gladstone B. “Skip” Adams III as the next provisional bishop for the diocese, calling him to South Carolina as he prepares to retire as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York.

The Standing Committee has called a special convention for Sept. 10 at Grace Church Cathedral in Charleston, where delegates will vote on installing Adams as the successor to Bishop Charles G. vonRosenberg.

Adams was the unanimous choice of the Standing Committee, said the committee’s president, the Rev. Jean McGraw. The nomination follows a four-month search process and interviews with several potential nominees, coordinated with help from Bishop Clay Matthews of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Pastoral Development.
