C. Andrew Doyle, ninth Bishop of Texas, describes his six-word autobiography as, “Met Jesus on pilgrimage, still walking.” Bishop Doyle received his M.Div. from Virginia Theological Seminary after receiving a fine arts degree from the University of North Texas. Prior to his election in 2008, Bishop Doyle served for five years as Canon to the Ordinary. He also served churches in Temple and College Station and was elected deputy to several General Conventions. He most recently served on the Structure Committee and is currently president of the Compass Rose Society, a global group of patrons and leaders making a difference in the Anglican Communion.
Bishop Doyle’s focus for ministry is service, evangelism, and reconciliation, planting 15 new churches and more than 50 new “missional communities” in the next five years. An avid reader and fly fisherman, Bishop Doyle has written several books, often mixing references from pop culture’s music and movies with the latest in secular leadership trends in order to reach the broadest spectrum of readers and challenge Episcopalians to move into their communities with the Gospel in word and action.
His writings include Unabashedly Episcopalian: The Good News of the Episcopal Church, 2012; Orgullosamente Episcopal, 2015; Church: A Generous Community Amplified for the Future, 2015; A Generous Community: Being the Church in a New Missionary Age, 2015; Small Batch: Local, Organic, Sustainable Church, 2016; The Jesus Heist, 2017; and Citizen: Faithful Discipleship in a Partisan World, 2020.

The earth quaked at the resurrection of Jesus, says Bishop Andy Doyle in his Easter sermon, and this quaking inaugurates the great re-beginning of the world and all therein. The messenger tells the women to go to Galilee—an image, an icon, for the world, the place where real people live, the place where people met God, and God met the people in the person of Jesus.
