Announcing the Selection of The Rt. Rev. Jim Waggoner as Assisting Bishop of the Diocese of Nevada

We are excited to announce the selection of The Rt. Rev. James Edward (Jim) Waggoner Jr. as our assisting bishop. +Jim will begin his tenure with us on April 1, 2019. He will serve one-quarter time performing episcopal functions such as visitations, confirmations, ordinations, and receptions.

Bishop Jim served as the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Spokane from October 2000 to March 2017. He earned a bachelor's degree at Marshall University and earned MDiv, Doctor of Divinity, and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA. Before seminary, he served in the Navy. He served 21 years with the Episcopal Diocese of West Virginia, 12 years in parish ministry, and 9 years on the bishop's staff before coming to Spokane.

What is an assisting bishop? An assisting bishop is a bishop appointed by the standing committee to serve under its direction for a certain period of time. This bishop already exercises episcopal authority, which means he has the ability to perform ordinations, confirmations, receptions, and visitations, but does not have voice or vote in the House of Bishops for the diocese they currently serve.
