We are pleased to announce that the Rev Jeremiah Mustered, executive assistant to the Bishop, has accepted a call to serve at St. Paul’s, Oaks as their interim Deacon-in-Charge. While we will miss his ministry in the Bishop’s office, we are eager to celebrate a flourishing ministry at St. Paul’s. Jeremiah’s last day in the Offices of the Diocese will be December, 14 2020.

We are excited to announce also that following many interviews, Christine Bancroft has accepted a call to serve as the Bishop’s new Executive Assistant. Any requests that would normally go to Jeremiah should go directly to Ms. Bancroft at

“I am delighted to join such a passionate and talented team and to further help them with all of their efforts as they continue to enlighten, support and lift up the community” said Christine Bancroft of her new position as executive assistant to the Bishop.

Christine has more than 8 years’ experience as an executive assistant.  Her career as an executive assistant began at a Trust and Estate Law Firm and later moved to the private education sector.  The move into education afforded her a role where she was able to support her students and community.  She found a great passion for being close with and helping the community and looks forward to continuing that work within the Diocese.

Christine is a Pennsylvania native, attending C.B. East High School and Bucks County Community College but eventually ventured westward when she attended and completed her B.A. of Psychology from Arizona State University.

Christine lives in Philadelphia and enjoys exploring the vast Philadelphia parks and playgrounds with her husband and three children.  She is also a skilled photographer and volunteers her services for her daughter’s school and donates to other charities through photography as well.
