About Bishop Duncan

The Rt. Rev. Philip M. Duncan served as bishop of the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast (2001-2015). During his tenure, the Diocese was hit hard by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Ivan. Bishop Duncan guided the Diocese through these challenges, which caused much damage to churches, congregations and caused much of the population to shift. Hurricane Ivan damaged the homes of all but one of the diocesan staff.
 
Following his retirement, he and his wife Kathy moved to Austin to be closer to family and he periodically assists with visitations and confirmations for the Diocese of Texas.
 
Bishop Duncan said he is happiest when doing visitations and ministry with the congregations, working with clergy and people. "I enjoyed preaching and teaching and helping others actualize their ministries and grow in their faith," he says.
 
A native of Long Island, he studied at Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, Ohio, where he earned a history degree. He received a Bachelor of Sacred Theology and Master of Divinity from The General Theological Seminary in New York City and a Doctor of Ministry in evangelism from Virginia Theological Seminary. He has been honored with Doctor of Divinity degrees from General Theological Seminary, University of the South and Virginia Theological Seminary.
