Local church hosts gathering of nation’s Anglican leaders (PDF)

By Michael Petty

Special to the Democrat

This past week, Talla­hassee was the venue for three significant Anglican meetings. The Most Rev. Robert Duncan, archbish­op and primate (principal bishop) of the Anglican Church in North America, came to St. Peter’s Angli­can Church along with about 40 members of the Church’s Executive Com­mittee, the Archbishop’s Cabinet and the board of the Anglican Relief and Development Fund. Local hotels and restaurants were the beneficiaries of an economic boost as these leaders from across North America traveled to our community.

The Anglican Church in North America was formed in 2009 and has more than 100,000 mem­bers in 1,000 congrega­tions in the United States and Canada. These con­gregations are organized into 21 dioceses (regional groups of congregations), each of which is presid­ed over by a bishop. The Right Rev. Neil Lebhar, the bishop of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese, which includes Tallahassee, also was present for the meet­ings.

The Anglican Church in North America is part of the global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, a fellowship of Angli­cans on this continent, South America, Africa and Asia. It is also a prov­ince- in-formation in the roughly 80 million mem­ber Anglican Commu­nion, the global commu­nion of churches headed by the Archbishop of Can­terbury. The Anglican Church in North America has four congregations in Tallahassee.

The Church’s Execu­tive Committee consists of 18 bishops, clergy and lay people from the Unit­ed States and Canada and governs the church between meetings of the Provincial Assembly.

The Archbishop’s Cabi­net consists of 10 bishops and priests who advise Archbishop Duncan in his ministry as primate.

The focus of attention for both these bodies is on reaching North Ameri­ca with the transforming love of Jesus Christ. One important piece of that is Anglican 1000, a program launched by Archbishop Duncan in June of 2009 to start 1,000 new Anglican churches in North Ameri­ca in five years.

Other priorities include shared ministry with other Anglican church­es around the globe and ecumenical relations with other church bodies, including the Orthodox Church in America, the Roman Catholic Church and the North American Lutheran Church.

The Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF) was created sev­en years ago for the pur­pose of supporting holis­tic, community- based development projects that incorporate evange­lism. Since the time of its founding, ARDF has sup­ported 106 projects in 32 countries. Current proj­ects include a vocational training center in Egypt, microfinance efforts in Myanmar, a small busi­ness program in Peru and drought relief in Africa.
