Bishop-elect Fitzwater, a priest in the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic, was elected on April 4, 2024 to be the next Bishop Ordinary for the Missionary Diocese of All Saints after the retirement of the current diocesan bishop, the Rt. Rev. Richard Lipka. He will serve as Bishop Coadjutor alongside Bishop Lipka until Lipka retires.

Archbishop Foley Beach commented, “I am encouraged by Darryl’s election and the youth he brings to the leadership of the Missionary Diocese of All Saints. He will be a great addition to the College, and I look forward to seeing how the Lord uses him in episcopal ministry.”

About Church of the Ascension



The Bible is God's Word-written. Scripture soaks worship, prayer, and practice. This is what it means to be Evangelical. The Faith is taught by good Bible preaching and teaching. This is good news!  Trusting in Jesus as Savior and walking with Him as Lord is a personal call to each Christian, and for the whole Church. Breathing in Scripture and exhaling it back to God as prayer is a hallmark at Ascension.



The Holy Spirit fills the believer and the whole church. He directs the Church in mission, confirming the Word with signs and wonders. He indwells the Church like life-giving wind, purifying fire, and boldness to share the good news about Jesus. The Spirit helps us pray when we do not know how to pray. The Spirit comforts us in our grief. The Spirit inspires us to hope more deeply in the Promises of God in Christ Jesus.

The Sacraments are the effective means of grace, organizing how the Christian lives her personal life and how the whole Church celebrates new life in Christ. The sacraments give confident assurance to the Church of God's sure promises in Jesus Christ. The Church has 2 Gospel Sacraments, Baptism and Eucharist, and 5 other commonly called Sacraments, Absolution, Marriage, Ordination, Anointing, and Confirmation.
