2020 Clergy & Spouse Retreat and Synod


We are delighted to bring you a recap of our 2020 Synod that was hosted by All Saints Church in Pawleys Island, SC. It was a joyous occasion where the Lord showed off by letting us catch a glimpse of His goodness for the past year and catch an exciting vision for the future of the Diocese of the Carolinas.

We began with a Clergy-Spouse Retreat held on Thursday Evening and Friday Morning on Marriage led by ACTS OF RENEWAL Ministry. Carol Anderson and Jim Shore delighted us through theater and teachings on marriage and ministry.

We opened with worship Friday evening. The Word was preached by The Rev. Rob Grafe with Bishop Steve Wood celebrating at the Table. This was followed by a beautiful dinner honoring the clergy and delegates. Saturday was a full morning with the Bishops’ addresses, introduction of new clergy, and the reception of the Redeemer Anglican, Asheville as a parish and St. Andrews Edneyville as a mission church. A church planting panel led a intriguing discussion followed by the Presentation of Finances.  Those elected and added to the Standing Committee were The Rev. Chip Edgar, The Rev. Kyle Wallace, Mr. Bob Gotherman and Mrs. Lisa Hohmann. College Ministries was presented by Justin Hare. The Ridley Institute was presented by the Rev. Randy Forrester. After a great morning Bishop Wood closed with prayer and gave the Dismissal.
