The Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High, Jr.
Clebrant
The Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High, Jr., was elected and instituted as the third provisional bishop of the diocese of Fort Worth in November, 2012. He retired as bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in the spring of 2012. Bishop High was former canon for pastoral ministries and the diocesan liaison to St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital when he was elected bishop suffragan June 7, 2003, at Christ Church Cathedral, Houston. He was consecrated October 4, 2003, at Camp Allen.
 
A passionate supporter of Church schools, he oversaw congregations in the Northeast, San Jacinto and Southeast Convocations. This includes Beaumont, Jasper, Liberty, Orange, Port Arthur and Port Neches in addition to Silsbee and Woodville as well as the area of east Texas from Jefferson to Lufkin, Longview and Henderson areas.
 
Prior to becoming Canon for Pastoral Ministries, Bishop High served in parish ministry for 32 years, most recently as rector of St. Paul’s, Waco. A native of Houston, Bishop High graduated from Bellaire High School; University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, and Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was elected to represent the diocese as a deputy at General Convention on eight occasions and was named Waco humanitarian of the year.
 

 
The Rev. David Madison, D. Min.
Preacher
Father Madison serves as the Executive Director of the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES).  SAES serves 107 member schools in six states and eleven dioceses. He serves as someone who has a lifetime of first-hand experience in Episcopal schools—from student, to priest, to  teacher, to administrator.
 
After earning a bachelor’s degree from Austin College and a law degree from Baylor University, Father Madison was admitted to the State Bar of Texas and practiced law during his early career. He then attended seminary at Nashotah House in Wisconsin, graduating cum laude with a Master of Divinity degree. Soon thereafter, he was ordained as a priest.  A pastoral appointment in Christian education led David to embrace his true gift of teaching. He went on to serve All Saints’ Episcopal School (Fort Worth) as the Director of Religious Studies and Chaplain before being appointed Assistant Head of School and Head of Upper School. He completed a Doctor of Ministry degree in educational leadership at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia.
