As Chancellors (Anglican lawyers) of the Province, dioceses and local congregations, we share a special interest in the legal challenges facing the Church and its mission in today’s culture. We meet to discuss these challenges, share ideas, resources, and best practices and support and pray for each other. We gather annually at the Provincial meetings of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), and by video for continuing education, sharing of best practices, and fellowship. Our network is open to non-lawyers (e.g. Bishops, Canons to the Ordinary, and others) who share our interest in canon law and religious liberty.
The Anderson Trane Fellowship looks to engage the best and the brightest of the ACNA’s next generation leadership. Through this fellowship, the American Anglican Council desires to train promising young ordinands, clergy, and laity as future leaders in our Province who are key to the success and longevity of the Anglican Realignment happening all around the globe. We envision leaders of local, regional, and national Anglican churches equipped to remain faithful, courageous, and resilient to their biblical and apostolic roots and to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission in the world.
Although the times have changed, the need to reaffirm what we believe, why we believe it, and how our Fundamental Declarations shape our response to the issues of the day remains the same. For this reason, the AAC released The Daniel Declaration: A Call to Mission, A Place to Stand. Read the Declaration and find out how to plug in to the AAC’s reforming work.
