  ANiC's 5 ministry priorities

Bishop Charlie Masters is challenging ANiC congregations to focus on five ministry priorities – bold witnesses, Biblically grounded, Loving children & families, On Mission, and Planting & growing churches. We are praying that God will make these priorities transformational realities in the life of every ANiC congregation. 

Bishop Charlie’s five priorities for ANiC churches are (in brief):

1. Bold witnesses – Every member of every ANiC church will personally have responded to Christ, as well as know how to share the gospel and invite others to come to Christ. Led by the Rev Ray David Glenn.

2. Biblically grounded – Every church of ANiC will be known for its strengths in the Bible and expository preaching. Parishioners are able to handle accurately the Word of Truth. Led by Canon George Sinclair.

3. Loving children – Every church in ANiC will have a vital ministry to children and youth, leading them to Christ and helping them grow as disciples of Jesus. Led by The Rev Jeremy and Kimberley Graham.

4. On mission – We each are intentionally and actively engaging in our communities, nations and world, focused on showing and sharing the love of God and fulfilling the Great Commission. Led by Led by Barclay Mayo+.

5. Planting & growing churches – Every congregation is focused on planting another congregation out of their church family. We are working to plant a church in every major community across Canada. Led by the Rev Alastair Sterne.

Bishop Charlie has appointed Joan Deeks, PhD, who is a member of the ANiC Council, to coordinate Strategic Ministry Planning. She is working with Bishop Charlie and the five ministry priority leaders to bring to fruition the vision for these ministries.

Please pray that God will use these ministry priorities as transformational realities in our churches. The Rev Garth Hunt has prepared prayers for you to use.

You can watch a video of Bishop Charlie discussing these priorities, his vision for ANiC, and his personal testimony in Burlington, Ontario on 13 March 2015. Also, Bishop Charlie addressed ANiC’s five priorities in while speaking at Trinity School for Ministry (Ambridge, PA) in March 2015. You'll find audio of his talk on the TSM website and photos here.
