Rev. Mary Stumme Froiland has served as bishop since 2013 and will complete her call on June 30.

A reception and banquet in her honor were held at the synod assembly where guests were regaled with stories of her ministry and life as told by colleagues and family.   We are grateful for her faithful service serving as both a congregational pastor and bishop of our synod!
