Diocese of Newark

The Rev. Lisa Hunt Remains Rector

Dear St. Stephen’s Community,

I am writing to inform you that I am staying in Houston as rector of St. Stephen’s! The clergy and lay leaders of the Diocese of Newark have elected another Reverend to be the next Bishop Diocesan. While I am honored to have been considered for this ministry, I know that the Holy Spirit is at work and that the right call has been made for us all.

I am thrilled to be continuing my exciting ministry among you. We have much to accomplish together and I am anticipating with joy our work to make our dreams become reality.

While this election process provided me an important outlet to reflect on the meaning of my call, my husband Bruce and I are sure that this decision is God’s will for us now.

The Reverend Lisa Hunt

I am one of four nominees for the Bishop Diocesan of Newark

Several months ago, I was invited to enter a confidential process to discern a call to be the Bishop Diocesan of the Diocese of Newark, in New Jersey. I have been raised up for election to this ministry, along with three others. I am sharing this news with you now because I want you to hear it from me, as it is shared with the people of the Diocese of Newark this morning, and I need to ask for your prayers. I am committed to my ministry here and excited by it, and I feel I must be faithful to what may be God's calling. Whatever happens, I know we will all be serving God with faithfulness.
