Welcome to Anglican Explorers!
In 2019, diocesan Bishop Charlie Masters, following consultation with the House of Bishops, the Archdeacons, and ANiC Council, authorized the new Anglican Explorers initiative. The purposes are:
- to identify people and Seed Groups interested in developing ANiC Projects.
- to identify potential Planters and help them discern their calling
- to befriend, train and support both Seed Groups and Planters
- to match Planters with Seed Groups and Opportunities under the direction of the bishop
- Celebrate every achievement and share news and updates regularly.
- Encourage innovative bi-vocational and non-stipendiary leadership as avenues to project initiation.
- Connect with individuals and small groups across the country that are not within reach of an ANiC Project or Parish and who are considering starting a ministry.
Bishop Ron Ferris and the Rev. Geoff Chapman have been named co-leaders with power to co-opt. Traff Green and Rev. Danielle Martell join them on the Board as the first Directors.
