Due to ongoing health related limitations, Dan Dick has decided to remove himself from consideration for the Episcopacy in the North Central Jurisdiction. “I am dealing with chronic health issues related to a degenerative spinal condition, and I truly do not believe I can handle the rigors and demands of the Episcopal office. I cannot in good conscience continue in the process knowing that my physical condition will not improve and that I may not be able to fulfill the duties and expectations of the job. I want to thank the Wisconsin Conference, and especially the Wisconsin General and Jurisdictional Conference delegation for their endorsement and support. I am both humbled and honored to be considered worthy of such high office and leadership. It is with deepest regrets that I make this decision. However, I am delighted that Barbara and I will remain in the Wisconsin Conference.”
