Our Bishops

We are an ad hoc group of over 80 Episcopal bishops who have come together to explore means of reducing the appalling levels of gun violence in our society, and to advocate for policies and legislation that save lives. Learn more about us.


Bishop Ian Douglas Bishop Ian Douglas, Diocese of Connecticut
Ian Douglas was ordained and consecrated on April 17, 2010 as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut. He previously served as the Angus Dun Professor of Mission and World Christianity at Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Massachusetts and an associate priest at St. James’s Church, Cambridge, Mass.

Ian has written extensively on mission, missiology, and the Anglican Communion, and has provided expert commentary and opinion for national media, print and broadcast. He served on the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) as a priest and on the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion from the ACC; as a bishop he continues to serve on the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion. He also served on the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church but resigned after his consecration as bishop. Ian received an honorary degree from Episcopal Divinity School in May 2010.
Bishop Daniel Gutiérrez, Diocese of Pennsylvania
Daniel G. P. Gutiérrez serves as the 16th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. The mystery of the Eucharist, scripture, and Jesus Christ are spiritual foundations for Gutiérrez. As a budding (sometimes clumsy but always eager) apprentice of Jesus, he is most influenced by His words to Peter: ‘Feed my sheep.’ He believes there is no greater calling than serving Jesus and following this instruction with each action he takes. He is blessed and grateful to be a bishop, a shepherd and a fellow sojourner. He is married to best friend Suzanne and rejoice in their son Jude, who attends the University of New Mexico.
Bishop Steven Miller, Diocese of Milwaukee
Steven Andrew Miller was consecrated on October 18, 2003 as the 11th bishop of the Diocese of Milwaukee. He graduated from Michigan State University in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in history and received his Master of Divinity degree from the General Theological Seminary in 1984 and was ordained a deacon and a priest that year. In 2004, he was awarded the Doctor of Divinity (honoris causa) by the General Theological Seminary.

Steven previously served parishes in Missouri and Virginia and was noted for his ability to attract young people and families to church life with activities, events and outreach opportunities, including mission outreach to Central America. His early experience kindled a special and ongoing interest in working with congregations in rural areas. He is a certified trainer for the Church Development Institute, specializing in leading vestry retreats and revitalization consultations for congregations of all sizes.


Bishop Mark Beckwith Bishop Mark Beckwith

Mark Beckwith was consecrated as the 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark in January 2007 and served until his retirement in September 2018. Prior to his election as bishop, Mark was rector of All Saints Church, Worcester, Massachusetts, in the Diocese of Western Massachusetts since 1993. He also served as associate rector of St. Peter’s, Morristown and rector of Christ Church, Hackensack.
Mark was a founding co-convener of Bishops United Against Gun Violence. In 2019, he began serving as a bishop liaison to the network to foster relationships and develop partnerships with groups working in the gun violence prevention arena.
