The first A.M.E.N. Minority Leaders Conference is a gathering of Anglican clergy and laypersons of color to cultivate community, create space for refreshment, and equip attendees in their mission to assist the Church in embodying the universal saving power of the gospel through multi-ethnic ministry. The conference will be held on June 15-17 in Plano, Texas preceding Provincial Assembly. Be invited to a space for renewal in the context of prayer, Eucharistic celebration, teaching, and fellowship. If you interested in reserving a space please let us know by emailing us here. More details on costing and lodging will be updated in due course.
Frequently asked questions:
Who is the conference for?
This conference is for lay and ordained ethnic minorities in ACNA churches. There is also some space for people who are not ethnic minorities, but minister to them. Those who are ordained or considering a call to ministry are strongly encouraged to attend.
Why are you holding this retreat?
Because ethnic minorities in the ACNA may feel isolated in their dioceses or churches. This will be a time to connect with others and be refreshed for ministry.
Do I have to be ordained or have an official leadership role in my church?
How much does it cost?
We are working on the final details. This should be public soon.
How can I help?
Diocese and churches should consider reaching out to members and clergy in their congregations and dioceses to sponsor their attendance.
