Episcopal Church Leadership
The Very Rev. Larry Holben - Dean of the Superior Deanery
 
Dean Larry Holben is the appointed clergyperson who presides over meetings of the Superior Deanery in the Northern California Diocese. In addition to his duties throughout the deanery, The Very Rev. Holben serves the congregation of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Mt. Shasta, California.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Rt. Rev. Barry Beisner - Bishop of the Diocese of Northern California
 

Bishop Beisner is the chief pastor for the Diocese of Northern California Diocese. He is responsible for ensuring that the faith proclaimed in parishes is the faith of the church. Bishops have the special office to ordain priests and deacons, and together with other bishops to ordain or consecrate other bishops. They are also the chief ministers in the rite of Confirmation, although the Prayer Book encourages bishops to act out their overall pastoral role by performing Baptisms and celebrating the Eucharist when they do Confirmations. Bishops are required to visit all the parishes and missions in their diocese at regular intervals. They also preside at diocesan conventions and have administrative responsibility for diocesan activities. Each diocese has a diocesan bishop, elected by that diocese meeting in convention to be the chief liturgical and administrative officer of the diocese. The official title of a bishop is The Right Reverend. For more information about Episcopal Church terms and definitions go to the Terminology tab on this website.
