During 2011 while living in the UAE, Bishop Nedd had multiple private audiences with members of the royal family. One of the crowning achievements of his term as archbishop has been the successful rescue of an entire family of persecuted Syrian Christians, whom he helped establish asylum in Scotland. Bishop Nedd facilitated an unprecedented intercommunion agreement with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and also led delegations to ecumenical dialogues with the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem and the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land.

Bishop Nedd worked on Capitol Hill for three Members of Congress and the Republican National Committee. Because of his political acumen, he has made a name for himself as a crisis manager, a thorough investigator and connected health care strategist. After leaving Washington, he maintained contact with numerous Members of Congress who now serve as House committee chairs and United States Senators.
Every year, Bishop Nedd mails about 2.5 million Americans with updates about the left’s attempts to remove God from the fabric of American society. Additionally, about 100,000 petitions are delivered annually to Members of Congress from supporters of Bishop Nedd’s organization, In God We Trust.
Bishop Nedd can be heard regularly on talk radio and seen on national television, providing commentary on a wide range of public policy issues including health care, education, the war on terror and Islamic extremism, second amendment rights, the right to life, and religious freedom. His op-eds can be read regularly in various newspapers around the country, and he is a recognized conservative on social media, where he can often be found engaging his 50k followers on Twitter.

An expert in health care policy, he worked as a health care strategist on the state, federal, and international level, pushing through and passing numerous initiatives. Bishop Nedd also successfully lobbied the World Health Organization, coordinating and directing a vast coalition effort to stop the spread of counterfeit and subtherapeutic prescription drugs in the developing world.
Bishop Nedd established a registry of parish nurses and, by hosting a series of workshops and utilizing electronic media, educated them on Medicare Part D. Through lecturing at civic organizations along the eastern seaboard, he has also been active in the campaign to eradicate Polio.
Bishop Nedd’s interest in education and young people led him to take a two-year sabbatical from the politics of Washington, to teach U.S. history and to establish and coach a policy debate team at a public charter high school in the nation’s capital. Bishop Nedd also helped establish a rugby team at another D.C. charter school, serving kids from underserved communities. Although no longer teaching, Bishop Nedd has provided scholarships to assist needy children, has established a primary school in Nairobi, Kenya, and even raised money to reopen and staff an orphanage in Abuja, Nigeria.
Despite all the demands on Bishop Nedd’s time, he still manages to preach at St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills, PA about 45 Sundays per year.
