From The Boston Globe-

A Massachusetts reverend was elected Saturday as the next bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina.

Rev. Samuel Rodman, who currently serves as the special projects officer on the Massachusetts diocesan staff, was elected XII Bishop Diocesan on the third ballot during a Special Electing Convention in Phillips Chapel at Canterbury School in Greensboro, the Diocese of North Carolina said in a press release.

Ordained in 1988, Rodman is a graduate of Bates College and Virginia Theological Seminary. He previously spent 16 years as the rector of St. Michael’s in Milton.

The Rt. Rev. Alan M. Gates, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, said in a statement that Rodman would be missed greatly in Eastern Massachusetts.
