The Episcopal Church of Sudan (ECS) has elected the Rt Revd Daniel Deng Bul of the Diocese of Renk to serve as its next Primate.
Connor has a link with the Diocese of Yei in Southern Sudan, where the Bishop is the Rt Rev Hilary Adebe Luate.
Bishop Deng will succeed Archbishop Joseph Marona, who retired on December 31 last after serving eight years as Sudan's Primate.
Addressing the Synod following his election on February 14, Rt Revd Daniel Bul pledged to work together with the whole people of God to build up the country and unite people. "We have a challenge ahead of us," declared the Archbishop-elect. "We need to teach our people for unity and love. We will do that together."
The new Archbishop is due to be enthroned on April 20 in Juba.
