New Methodist bishop to be installed in Fargo

FARGO – Bruce R. Ough has been assigned to be the bishop of the United Methodist Churches of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. He will be installed at 3 p.m. Sunday at Fargo First UMC.

It is rare for a United Methodist bishop to serve in their home state. Most bishops are assigned to serve outside of their home territory.

Ough is a native of Williston, N.D., attended North Dakota State University and has several connections in Fargo. He has served the United Methodist Church throughout the world, most recently in Ohio.
