Council Nedd II is an American political, religious and cultural commentator who serves as the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Missionary Church, a Continuing Anglican body. Nedd is the child of Council Nedd of Sumter, South Carolina and Gertrude D. Nedd (née Anderson) of Steelton, Pennsylvania.


Prior to joining the full-time ministry, Nedd was involved in the public policy arena in a variety of capacities. He served as a senior legislative staff member for three Members of Congress, including Rep. Bill Clinger (R-PA).

After leaving Capitol Hill, Nedd opened his own firm, Sumlin Associates, which focused on crisis management and crisis aversion for a variety of clients. He also spent two years teaching United States history and policy debate at the New School for Enterprise and Development, a charter high school in Washington, D.C. for children from the impoverished southeast section of the city.

Nedd serves on the Board of Directors for The Alzheimer’s Association of the National Capital Area, The American Autoimmune Related Disease Association, The Alliance for Health, Education, and Development (AHEAD), and on the board of trustees of the Good Samaritans of the Knights Templar Foundation. He has participated in senior and community health fairs around the United States to educate clergy and seniors on the new Medicare prescription drug benefit and assisted in teaching middle school students and teachers how to incorporate debate techniques into the classroom.

Church work

Before being consecrated to the episcopate, Nedd served as Vicar General of the Diocese of the Chesapeake while also serving as the rector of St. Anthony’s Anglican Church in Marshall, Virginia and as a chaplain at the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Virginia. Upon his election to the episcopate he moved the diocesan headquarters from Virginia to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. As part of Nedd's work, he heads a variety of ministries to the Kenyan, Sudanese and Ethiopian diaspora in the United States.

Nedd serves as the director of the Ecumenical Institute for Health Policy Research at Valley Forge Christian College, Woodbridge, Virginia Campus, and is a fellow in canon law and liturgics at St. Alcuin House, an unaccredited graduate theological school where he completed a Doctor of Philosophy degree in religion.
