Ian Douglas, Ph.D

I Connecticut

Since 2010, I have served as bishop diocesan of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, the oldest and one of the largest and most diverse dioceses in The Episcopal Church. As bishop I have helped our parishes and diocesan organizations adapt to the realities of the post-Christendom world. We have reimagined our life together focusing on God's mission of restoration and reconciliation in our neighborhoods and beyond. As chair of our diocesan investment fund with 125+ participating organizations and combined assets of over $140 million, I led the trustees to pursue a socially just and environmentally sustainable fund. I am an author, teacher, activist and organizer across The Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion. I work for unity in God's mission by following Jesus. In the wake of the COVID pandemic, the church needs experienced, forward-looking, creative leaders who are not afraid to do new things. I will bring this experience and vision to the Trustees of the Church Pension Fund.
