Bridgeforth brings experience, collaborative mindset into new role as bishop

Raised in rural Alabama, Bishop Cedrick Bridgeforth brings a wealth of experience in diverse ministry settings, clergy coaching, teaching, writing, and work in the non-profit world to his role as a newly-elected and consecrated bishop in the Western Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church. He will serve the Greater Northwest Episcopal Area (which comprises the Alaska, Oregon-Idaho and Pacific Northwest Conferences) beginning Jan. 1, 2023.

Epiphany Message from the Western Jurisdiction College of Bishops

As we welcome the three new bishops of the Western Jurisdiction, the new College of Bishops offers a short Epiphany message to share in local churches during worship service or online. The video features Bishops Karen Oliveto of the Mountain Sky Conference, Sally Dyck of the California-Nevada Conference, Dottie Escobedo-Frank of the California-Pacific Conference, Carlo Rapanut of the Desert Southwest Conference, and Cedrick Bridgeforth of the Greater Northwest Episcopal Area.
