Kate Carney Bond

Director of Faith Formation and Discipleship

Kate joined our staff in January of 2019 after previously serving as the Lay Minister for Formation at St. Paul’s Cathedral in downtown Oklahoma City for eight years. She leads our ministry to youth and young adults in the Diocese of Oklahoma by consulting with local congregations, providing educational resources and training, and enhancing our Diocesan programs for young people.

Kate first felt a call to professional lay ministry in the Episcopal Church while in college and serving as a counselor at St. Crispin’s Camp and Conference Center before going on to work as the youth minister at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Kate grew up in SW Oklahoma City and attended the University of Oklahoma where she received her BA and MA in Political Science. In 2015, Kate received a Certificate in Leadership in Lifelong Formation from FORMA (the network for Christian Formation in the Episcopal Church) and Virginia Theological Seminary. She currently serves on the FORMA Board. Kate has also served as the Assistant Secretary of Convention for the Diocese of Oklahoma, Secretary of Province VII, and as a Deputy to General Convention in 2012, 2015, and 2018. Kate is passionate about forming disciples and working with young people in the church.

Kate has one daughter, Brigid, and you can usually find them cooking together in the kitchen, reading a book, or watching a movie. Their family also includes Sully, a rescue Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd mix, and Oliver, the tabby cat.
