Bishop Todd Hunter
Bishop Todd leads the diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others which belongs to the Anglican Church in North America. He is also the rector of Holy Trinity Church in Costa Mesa, California. He is an author, speaker, and visionary who has a very busy schedule keeping watch over his geographically extended flock. We see him on several occasions a year for ordinations, confirmations, or other important diocesan events. But he is always only a phone call or email away if we need his assistance. Because of the geographical distance, however, Bishop Todd depends on a local dean to offer support. Our dean is Fr. Rob Patterson of Redeemer Anglican Church in Santa Cruz.
