New head of the Episcopal Church in Delaware to be ordained

From Delaware-

 The last time the head of the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Delaware stepped down, it took 17 ballots across multiple days to elect a successor. This time around, only five ballots and a few hours were required.

Kevin Brown, formerly the rector of the Church of the Holy Comforter in Charlotte, North Carolina, was selected in July as the next bishop for the Diocese of Delaware and will be formally ordained and consecrated today. A ceremony will be held at Delaware State University, with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, the leader of the Episcopal Church, in attendance.

“Delaware, it’s an exciting place, it’s an interesting place, and that’s part of the call that I felt, and as I met people, I would see that there’s a hospitality that I found here that I have really, really come to enjoy,” Bishop-elect Brown said Friday.

He is the 11th bishop in the history of the Diocese of Delaware.
