Location of the Diocese of Nevada

The Episcopal Diocese of Nevada is the diocese of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America comprising the entire State of Nevada. The fourth and current bishop of the Diocese is Dan Thomas Edwards, ordained bishop on 5 January 2008.[1]

The see city is Las Vegas. There is no cathedral in this diocese.

Under the leadership of its first diocesan bishop, Wesley Frensdorff, who served from 1972 to 1985, Nevada became a leader in the concept of Total Ministry, the "ministry of all the baptized," in which laity and clergy have a more equal share in ministry.[2]

The third bishop of Nevada, the Right Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, was elected the 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church at the 2006 General Convention. She is the first female primate in the Anglican Communion.
