A profile of Kansas Bishop Dean Wolfe

Five quick things you probably didn’t know about The Rt. Rev. Dean Wolfe, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, until just now:

1. He puts 30,000-40,000 miles on his car each year. (Given a 2003 start date as bishop, this has him traveling approximately the distance from the earth to the moon over the past eight years.)

2. He had a minister’s license at age 16.

3. He was more or less acting COO of St. Michael and All Angels, Dallas (then the nation’s largest Episcopal parish) when he was called to lead in Kansas.

4. A child at a soccer game once thought he was an athletic super-star because of his bishop’s ring.

5. He graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary but, as with many of his colleagues, sits on the Board of Sewanee.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
