Pittsburgh, PA, August 3 — On Saturday, August 6, 2022, at 10 a.m. the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh will consecrate the Rev. Alex Whitcomb Cameron as their next bishop. Bishop-elect Cameron was elected on the first ballot on Saturday, April 30, by 117 clergy and 92 lay delegates, after a year-long search process. He was consented to by the College of Bishops of the Anglican Church in North America on Monday, June 13, 2022. Archbishop Foley Beach commented, “I believe Bishop-elect Alex will serve the diocese well and honor Jesus in the way he leads. I look forward to having him in the College of Bishops.”
Bishop-elect Cameron has been an ordained Anglican priest for more than 30 years, serving churches in Montreal, Vermont, and Chicago. He currently leads the Isaiah Forty Foundation, which provides teaching, prayer, and coaching to those seeking healing and wholeness.
He has served as Canon for Church Planting and Leadership Development in the Anglican Diocese in New England, on their Standing Committee as a member and as Chair; and as the Chair of the Bishop’s Council in the Diocese of the Upper Midwest; and previously worked for General Electric and had his own consulting company. Alex and his wife Tamara have been married since 1987 and have four adult children and three grandchildren. He enjoys cycling, woodworking, and playing double bass.
“It is my greatest joy in ministry to see people gain a fresh understanding that the gospel of Jesus Christ is deeply relevant to and transformative for the particular circumstances of their lives. Helping people—and sometimes whole communities—unearth that reality of Jesus in transforming, healing, and bringing us forward is one of the things that most motivates me,” he said. “I am thankful for the College’s consent and for the election by the Diocese of Pittsburgh. I look forward to gathering with the Diocese and engaging in mission and ministry together.”
