Central Ecuador Reorganization Viewed as an Example for San Joaquin

[The Living Church] 15 Feb 2008--The recent visit to the Diocese of Central Ecuador has given members of Executive Council hope that the reconstitution of the Diocese of San Joaquin will be successful, according to a message made public at the conclusion of the council’s Feb. 11-14 meeting in Quito.

The previous Bishop of Central Ecuador was deposed in 2006 for failure to provide adequate financial information over the course of a number of years. Subsequently the diocese learned that title to many of its assets–including the cathedral, the diocesan office building and a school‑were listed as personal property of the former bishop. During the meeting in Ecuador council members toured a number of diocesan outreach ministry projects and congregations.
