LDS Sustain James Gardanier as New Bishop in Pleasanton Third Ward

Original post made by Ken mano on Jun 4, 2014

The Pleasanton California Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the calling of a new bishopric for the Pleasanton 3rd Ward congregation. This is one of six Mormon congregations in the cities of Pleasanton and Dublin. The new bishop is James Gardanier with Stephen Hilton as 1st Counselor and Richard Boekweg as 2nd Counselor. Bishop Jeremy McFadden and his counselors Jim Gardanier and Mike Miller were released and received an expression of gratitude for their years of service.

The church operates with a lay ministry and all of its local members serve each other without pay. Bishop James Gardanier, President of Vision Media, is married to Kerry Gardanier and they have three children. Stephen Hilton, VP, Controller-Americas with
Robert Half, is married to Michelle Hilton and they have four children. Richard Boekweg, Senior Manager, Build & Release with Practice Fusion, is married to Becky Boekweg and they have four children.

Bishop Gardanier and his counselors, with the support of their wives and children, will lead a congregation of approximately 400 members and help them increase their commitment to our Savior Jesus Christ, strengthen their families and serve their fellowmen.
