Mitchell Sams to Leave Church House Staff

by | Nov 16, 2017

A Cause of Celebration and Sadness:

Church House’s director of communications, Mitchell Sams, has accepted a call to serve as senior executive assistant to the Treasurer of the World Bank. We are thrilled for Mitchell and sad for the diocese, his last day with us is November 30th.

Mitchell joined the Church House staff as communications and events manager in June, 2016. He played a key role in the execution of a redesigned web presence, and assumed ongoing responsibility for our weekly e-bulletins, social media and other diocesan communications. He’s also overseen logistical arrangements for major diocesan events such as the annual regional assemblies and diocesan convention. Mitchell’s abilities in visioning, branding, and graphic design have been invaluable in our overall effort to strengthen and extend the reach of our electronic communications and social media presence.

Together with technology director Peter Turner, Mitchell has worked extensively across the diocese, helping parishes strengthen their approach to communications, website and social media. Earlier this year, we promoted Mitchell to serve as director of communications.  

Beyond his professional abilities and experience, Mitchell is a devoted Episcopalian. His deep knowledge of the traditions, practices, and the challenges of our time has been invaluable. Mitchell quickly became a beloved member of our diocesan community. We will miss his warmth, persistent good cheer, and sense of humor. Mitchell goes forth on this great professional adventure with our deep gratitude, affection, and blessings.
