West Virginia Anglicans, the official Chapter of the American Anglican Council in the Diocese of West Virginia is please to announce a training conference featuring keynote speaker, the Rev. Canon Ellis E. Brust, Chief Operating Officer of the American Anglican Council.
Additional speakers include Sarah Hey from the Diocese of Upper South Carolina and Bill Boniface from Episcopal Witness. Various speakers from West Virginia will also make presentations.
This conference will be a unique opportunity to learn about evangelism and grass-roots networking techniques for a mission church building a faithful Anglican Christian witness. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear from and ask questions of the AAC regarding the current situation and potential future of ECUSA and the Anglican Communion.
We are especially interested in bringing in participants from rural and Appalachian parishes so that we can learn from each other about how to be a mission minded church in those communities.
