In 2018, this jurisdiction had become very small and the bishop dissolved it. In December 2018, I sought incardination in the EACA. I completed a Doctor of Ministry degree in 2001 and have done work toward a Ph.D with the Graduate Theological Foundation and the continuing education department of Oxford University through the Summer Theology Program at Christ Church College, Oxford.
