I was a first-time delegate at the 2019 Provincial Assembly. There were so many God-loving Anglicans, a sea of collars both young and old, both women and men. Excitement and anticipation around the release of the new Book of Common prayer was felt throughout the conference center. First stop for me was of course registration then beeline to the book store for my own copy. I saw delight on the faces of all as they were handed the first edition, the feel of the book cover, the feel of the pages on our hands. Many asked “could more be purchased, yes the volunteers answered”. My friend Beth Conkle bought seven to give as gifts. I also sensed an underlying sigh of relief, that in the ten years ACNA has been around, this priority project was complete; truly something that was done by the grace and strength of God and the wonderful people on the task force

Beloved in Christ Jesus: Greetings in the name of the crucified, risen, and ascended King, our Lord Jesus Christ!
As I write this, my first letter to you all as Chairman of the Gafcon Primates Council, I want to begin by giving my heartfelt thanks to God for the work of my friend and predecessor, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh. His courage, clarity of vision, godly wisdom and love for the Lord have been so essential to the growth of Gafcon in recent years.
Come join fellow Anglicans from all across North American this June in Plano as the ACNA assembly votes on the Book of Common Prayer and discusses the implications of the Great Commission.

The College of Bishops in the Anglican Church in North America has continued to discuss what women's ministry looks like the broader church. This video shows part of the recent January College meeting where there were three TED-style presentations by women in ministry about what their ministry has looked like.
