Leaders from across two continents honor Bishop Stearns in a milestone year

How do you celebrate a global leader that has touched millions of lives on an important birthday year? You have birthday parties on two continents, of course!

This October, Bishop Stearns celebrated his fiftieth birthday, thirty years in ministry and five years as Bishop of the Tabernacle.

At special celebrations in Jerusalem, Israel and Buffalo, New York, family, friends, colleagues, and esteemed leaders took time to celebrate a man who is making a great difference in our world.

Minister of Knesset, Rabbi Yehuda Glick shares of the impact Bishop Robert is having on behalf of Israel.

In Jerusalem following the Awake Jerusalem event, leaders such as Minister of Knesset, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Rabbi Marc Schneier, and others recounted the many ways that this one man’s “yes” had impacted not just them but the course of history. One of the very special tributes came from Bishop Robert’s son Isaac who publicly honored his father for his example and leadership.

A few weeks later, over 175 people gathered in the newly opened Admiral Room at the Marin in downtown Buffalo, NY. Guests from across the northeast traveled to be a part of this special evening to honor and celebrate his impact both in the community and across the world. Special guest Bishop David Thomas celebrated with those gathered the honor and humility that he has seen exemplified in Bishop Robert’s life.

Thank you to the many who sent in cards and gifts. Each remembrance was deeply appreciated.
