2017-effective-gospel-centered-churches-title-bar-large

Exploring practical ways we can build effective gospel-centered churches through the lens of the 16th-century reformers.

The gospel need in the USA today is great. So many have never heard; and so many others do not know what to believe.

The Anglican Connection conference offers ministers, church leaders, and members an opportunity to re-envision and refresh effective gospel-centered ministries.

PRACTICALLY FOCUSED

  • We live under Christ’s command to “Go… and make disciples” (Matthew 28:16-20)
  • William Temple, a former Archbishop of Canterbury famously said: ‘The Church is the only institution that exists for those who are not its members’.
  • We will explore practical ways to motivate and equip churches to find fresh ways to introduce others to God’s good news.
  • We are committed to developing churches that offer a fresh and authentic expression of Christianity for the 21st  century.
