GAFCON II: We Need Your Help and Quickly
From The Rt. Reverend Neil Lebhar, Bishop:
We need your help, and quickly. Let me explain.
GAFCON, now operating within the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, has become a movement with tremendous impact globally, as we all seek to live out historic Anglicanism with biblical faithfulness and missional passion. It is time for this movement to reconvene in order to continue pressing ahead. GAFCON II will therefore be held in Nairobi, October 21-26, 2013 (see: www.gafcon.org ). The theme is "Making Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ."
Along with others in ACNA, our diocese has been asked to send a five person delegation. In addition, we are hoping to fund two other members from the diocese so they may contribute their expertise in theological preparation and in discipling in the next generation.
Given both the conference costs and the international travel involved, we need financial support well beyond our current diocesan budget. More. . .
Bishop Neil's Easter Message
Ordination Preparation Team
God is raising up men and women to ordained leadership in His Church! What a privilege it is to walk alongside those who are discerning this call as this discernment happens within the context of the local parish as well as in the Diocese. The goal of the Ordaination Preparation Team in the Gulf Atlantic Diocese is to be thorough, yet flexible. Here you will be able to find the materials you need to take the next step - whether you are a layperson discerning a call, a Rector, a member of the Parish Discernment Team, a Vestry person, or in Diocesan leadership.
