Churches for the Sake of Others
As the appointed Dean of the Diocese, I am working with the larger C4SO team to develop and sustain our rapid growth as we move from the ‘dream stage‘ to ‘team stage‘. I serve directly with Bishop Todd Hunter and his Canon to the Ordinary, the Rev. Canon Kimberley Pfeiler to help us all work towards a unified vision during this wonderfully productive season.
The Matthew 25 Initiative of the Anglican Church in North America
LeaderWorks has developed a platform for this ministry that supports new “Matthew 25” programs in churches and institutions across the US and Canada. These programs and ministries that are based on the very last sermon illustration that Jesus gave; namely, that ministry and service to the poorest and the least is a ministry to the Lord himself! (Read Matthew 25:31-46) Begun with a generous grant from one donor, matching funds are being raised in the ACNA. LeaderWorks is developing the Province-wide effort to raise more resources, start even more M25i Ministries, and spread the good news of this effort.
Keep track of this project at www.Matthew25i.org
Rector’s Summit for Vision and Planning (RSVP)
The American Anglican Council and LeaderWorks created a training/learning community for Rectors of multi-staff or larger churches in the ACNA. We host gatherings dedicated to developing a peer-learning community to strengthen skills, gain insights into best practices, enrich each ministry, and encourage fellowship year by year. RSVP is an ‘Invitational Summit‘ for Rectors so finding the leaders to attend and encouraging them to be a part of this is an important aspect of the process. Read what one Rector had to say about it here. Or watch a video about it.
