The Right Reverend Council Nedd II, Ph.D., TOSF is a founding member of the Project 21 black leadership network.
Bishop Nedd serves as the rector of St. Alban's Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills, PA and as the third presiding bishop of the Episcopal Missionary Church. He also is the author of the book "The Final Four: A Scriptural Journey Through Advent " (November, 2013).
Although he had always felt called to the ministry, Bishop Nedd started his professional life as a political campaign worker and Congressional staffer. While working in politics, he continued to pursue his true vocation and was eventually ordained a priest in the Anglican Church and in September 2005 was consecrated as the Bishop of the Chesapeake.
Bishop Nedd's interest in the needs of young people led him to leave politics and for several years he taught at-risk youth at a charter school in the District of Columbia. His life-long interest in politics coupled with his desire to proclaim the Gospel led him to launch In God We Trust, an organization established to push back against the secular tide in this country that is seeking to remove God from the fabric of American life.
