RUM is looking forward to hosting the Bishop for our 51st annual dinner.
Here's a little bio on Bishop: Sally Dyck was born in Ritzville, Washington. She was born into a Mennonite family and joined the United Methodist Church as a young adult.
She graduated magna cum laude from Boston University College of Liberal Arts with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. She graduated magna cum laude from Boston University School of Theology. She received a certificate from the Ecumenical Institute which is a joint program of the World Council of Churches and the University of Geneva, Switzerland. She was ordained in the East Ohio Annual Conference. She also received a Doctor of Ministry from United Theological School, Dayton, OH, in Black Church Studies as a Bishop James S. Thomas fellow.
Sally's personal mission statement is taken from the communion liturgy: "…one in Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to the world." Throughout her ministry in and near the Cleveland, Ohio area, she reached out to persons who for various reasons did not see themselves as "belonging" to Christ, a worshiping community, or having a witness or ministry of their own. She served the communities and the churches of Faith (1978-1984), Church of the Redeemer (1984-1997), and Garfield Memorial (2003-2004). She also served as a district superintendent (1997-2003) in the Wooster area.
Sally served as a director of the Board of Global Ministries (1999-2004), chairing the Personnel Committee. She was a jurisdictional delegate six times and a General Conference delegate four times. In February 2006 she was elected to the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches. Throughout her service in the wider church, her mission has been to direct and empower the church to transform the world through its calling and witness. In addition, the spiritual disciplines of the Christian tradition are a vital grounding to her faith.
Sally was elected to the episcopacy in Davenport, Iowa, in 2004 and assigned to the Minnesota Annual Conference. After serving 8 years in the Minnesota area, she was assigned to the Northern Illinois Conference in July 2012. She seeks to be the bishop to the nones (those persons who check "none" when asked their religious preference). She begins her day with prayer, Bible study, and a 3-6 mile run through the cathedral of nature.
