Our Bishop

The Right Reverend Ryan S. Reed has served as the diocesan bishop since January of 2020. He succeeds the Right Reverend Jack Leo Iker, who served as the third Diocesan Bishop of Fort Worth from 1995 to 2020. His predecessors are the Rt. Rev. A. Donald Davies and the Rt. Rev. Clarence C. Pope, Jr.

From its inception, the Diocese of Fort Worth has committed itself to the proclamation and practice of traditional, Biblically-centered faith. There is a diversity of worship in the diocese that ranges from traditional Anglo-Catholic spirituality to Evangelical expression. The churches of the diocese continue to grow steadily as a direct result of our commitment to a traditional expression of Anglicanism and the fact that many of the North Texas communities we serve are young and growing.

About the Diocese & Mission

The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth was formed in 1983 after the decision was made to divide the existing Diocese of Dallas into two dioceses. In 2008, the decision was made by the diocese to leave its affiliation with the Episcopal Church in order to faithfully contend for the unchanging truth of Jesus Christ and His Gospel. 

Today, the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth consists of 62 congregations serving communities across Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Major cities in the diocese include Fort Worth, Arlington, Monroe, Wichita Falls, Grand Prairie, Keller, Brownwood, and Stephenville. 

The Diocesan Center for Ministry is located on the west side of Fort Worth near the intersection of I-30 and Loop 820. The address is 2900 Alemeda Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76108.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Diocese of Fort Worth {ACNA} is to equip the saints for ministry for the building up of the Body of Christ. We are Anglicans who hold to the historic Christian faith as contained in the catholic and apostolic faith and order of the Church.

We are disciples who make disciples by embracing and sharing the beauty, truth, and goodness given to the Church by the Father, through the Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
