Roger Copeland Ames is an American Anglican priest. He is the first bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes in the Anglican Church in North America, after being a suffragan bishop for the Convocation of Anglicans in North America. He is married and has two adult children and three grandchildren. He received his undergraduate degree at Denison University. After ten years working at the sales and marketing business, and at a college admissions office, he experienced a religious conversion. He and his family started to attend a local Episcopal congregation and he decided to follow religious life. He studied at the Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, where he earned his M.D. in 1977. He was ordained as a deacon in June 1977 and as a priest in December 1977. Ames served as rector of Christ Church, Charlevoix, Michigan, moving afterwards to St. Luke's Anglican Church, in Fairlawn, near Akron, Ohio, where he remained for more than 20 years. He and his congregation left the Episcopal Church in 2004, coming under the oversight of bishop Frank Lyons, of the Diocese of Bolivia at the Anglican Church of the Southern Cone of America.
