Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints changes leadership

On Sunday, Oct 10, Auburn Stake President Michael Dahle installed Stephen Glazier as the new bishop of the Penn Valley Ward of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, replacing Bishop Dale Tracy, who was honorably released after serving 51/2 years.

Bishop Glazier and his wife, Deborah, have six children. He is a dentist in Lake Wildwood and has lived in the area since 1982. Some of his previous assignments in the church were serving on the High Council for two years, Scout Master, 1st and 2nd Counselor in the Bishopric, and Young Men’s President. For 21 years he has been involved in community service with the scouting program. One service that is done every year is picking up Christmas trees in Lake Wildwood to be given to a core engineer for the fish hatchery at Englebright Lake. Bishop Glazier said he loves working with people.

Ron Turner will serve as 1st counselor to Bishop Glazier. He and his wife, Kristine, have six children and one grandchild. He joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 28 years ago, when he was 17.

Nate Davey will serve as 2nd counselor to Bishop Glazier. He and his wife, Lori, have three girls. Davey works for De Martini R.V. One of his previous church assignments was Young Men’s President for four years. He loves working with the youth and his new calling will provide an opportunity to work with them.

When Bishop Dale Tracy, 1st counselor Dan Davis, and 2nd counselor Elvin Prescott were released, it was with a vote of thanks from the members of the Penn Valley Ward.

Church services for the Penn Valley Ward are held on Sunday at 1 p.m. at 615 Hollow Way in Nevada City.
