The Rt. Rev. Charles Glenn vonRosenberg, a retired Bishop of East Tennessee with longtime ties to South Carolina, has been nominated as Provisional Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. His name will be presented for a vote on January 26 when local clergy and laypeople who are continuing with the Episcopal Church gather with Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori in a special meeting of the Convention.
Bishop vonRosenberg and his wife, Annie, already reside in the Daniel Island community of Charleston, where he retired in 2011 after serving for 12 years as Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of East Tennessee. Since October he has served on a voluntary basis as advisor to the Steering Committee that formed in October to help reorganize the diocese.
For many years, Bishop vonRosenberg served in the Diocese of Upper South Carolina, as rector of the Church of the Resurrection in Greenwood and later as Canon to the Ordinary (assistant to the Bishop) of that diocese from 1989-1994.
