Call for an Anglican Minister * Our Class Leader * Our Lay Reader
At the UEC's upcoming Western Convocation, we will request official Anglican ministerial leadership. We are still in the process of calling a minister, right in learning and godly conversation ( p. 536, 1928 BCP). If ye be a deacon or priest, even an enrolled seminarian, and interested in mission work in northern California, please contact us-- but more importantly, contact the UE ecclesiastical authority (e.g., Vicar-General).
Opening for an Anglican Minister. We are looking for a bivocational minister to lead the extension of the United Episcopal Church in northern California, adorned with true Doctrine and innocency of life (p.. 237, 1928 BCP). Of course, most of the work is in the south Bay Area. The mission would be (re)organized according to the minister's wishes while keeping the 1928 BCP, with its generous rubrics (also related UE canons), for public worship. Please contact our District's Ordinary or Vicar-General for actual qualifications.
Our Class Leader. The Rev. Mr. Casey Fargo has been our class leader since 2017. He also occasionally preaches for the UE chapel. Mr. Fargo was ordained to the diaconate in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) in 2013 and enjoys promoting biblical discipleship. He's currently forming prayer meetings for the OPC in Angels Camp and Sonora CA. The Fargo family have been ministering to the sick and elderly for over ten years, mostly in San Francisco.
Our Lay Reader. Mr. Charles Bartlett was confirmed in the UECNA in 2010. He became a Reader for the Fremont mission in 2014, keeping a bare public worship twice annually at the Quaker Meeting House. Three of Mr. Bartlett's five children were baptized by United Episcopal priests during visitations at his home over the years. He enjoys meeting other Christians in the Far West and loves old Oregon & California history.
"O God, who dost ever hallow and protect thy Church; Raise up therein, through thy Spirit, good and faithful stewards of the mysteries of Christ, that by their ministry and example thy people may abide in thy favor and be guided in the way of truth... Amen" (1928 BCP, p. 562)
