The Rt. Rev. Prince Grenville Singh, Ph.D. serves as Bishop Provisional of the Episcopal Dioceses of Eastern and Western Michigan. He was elected by the joint convention of the dioceses held in Lansing, October 2021.
Bishop Singh was born and raised in India, attending seminary and serving several congregations before immigrating to the US in the mid-90s for additional study and service in the Episcopal Church. He was consecrated bishop of the Diocese of Rochester in 2008. His church-wide leadership includes Bishops Against Gun Violence, the House of Bishops Theology Committee, the Taskforce on the Theology of Social Justice, as a coach in the College for Bishops and several others.
In his fourteen years as bishop diocesan of the Diocese of Rochester, his tenure was marked by three core priorities: relational welcome, nurturing and growing the beloved community; servant leadership, empowering lay and clergy leaders for the work of the church; and spiritual stewardship, considering spiritual and material resources with an eye on sustainability, generosity, and invitation.
Bishop Singh brings energy and excitement for the work we’re doing together as dioceses — charting a way forward grounded in mission, imagination, and collaboration.
