Who goes to the Provincial Assembly?

Bring your whole team: this one is for everybody

The ACNA Provincial Assembly is a time for all Anglicans in North America to worship, connect, and be inspired for the coming years as a body. This year we are learning how to do mission right on our doorstep.

So who goes to Assembly and why?

  • Small group leaders and members of the church vestry. Your congregation is part of something bigger than itself. Leaders will bring back tools to help their own churches participate in the larger mission of the Anglican Church in North America and Anglicans worldwide.
  • Youth groups. A fully programmed youth track for junior high and high schoolers is being planned through Anglican Youth, including an optional post-Assembly trip to Chicago to experience urban missions.
  • Healing & pastoral care teams. The ‘Equipped to Heal’ prayer training school sub-conference is available for those leading and interested in pastoral care in your parish.
  • Campus ministers. Reach college students in your city with special equipping sessions. Greenhouse Campus Fellowship wants to help you own the campuses near you and help today’s students become tomorrow’s leaders.
  • Missional church advocates. The assembly theme this year, “Mission on Our Doorstep” is emphasizing our responsibility to gospel mission in our neighborhoods through church planting, evangelism, Biblical social justice, and more. Come to be inspired and equipped for mission on your doorstep.
  • Songwriters and worship leaders. Special tracks are designed for musicians from around the province to network.

  • Chaplains. Anglican Chaplains is holding its Training Symposium and Convocation beforehand and concurrently with Assembly 2017.
  • Latino congregations and ministry leaders. A fully-integrated sub-conference in Spanish is sponsored by Caminemos Juntos (the Anglican Latino church planting movement), with simultaneous translation of the main plenary sessions.
  • Those invested in the future of the ACNA. Assembly 2017 is another step in the deep partnership between the ACNA and GAFCON provinces. Come and see how a historic partnership between Anglicans in the Global South and North America is poised to reach the whole world with the authentic gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Clergy, council and assembly members. Don’t come alone! Bring your families, your local leaders, and those interested in the Anglican Way. Inspire and equip those who may be future leaders.
