Anglican Realignment Strengthens in North America with Discipleship Conference

Anglican Realignment Strengthens in North America with Discipleship Conference
Anglicans and Lutherans to hold first-of-its kind joint conference

The growing Anglican realignment in North America will kick it up a notch with a major first-of-its kind event in February when leading bishops, clergy and laity from the North American Lutheran church (NALC) sit down with members of the Anglican Church in North America to explore discipleship in a spiritually fragmented and divided America.

The joint DiscipleLife 2020 conference will be held in Orlando, Florida. "We will ask what does it mean to be disciples of Jesus in the 21st century living out in today's world," said NALC bishop Dan Selbo. "Where is God is leading us...we are going back to basics," he said in a video broadcast.

The highlight of the occasion will be with the appearance of ACNA Archbishop and GAFCON chairman Foley Beach.

"These two church bodies are coming together and we will focus on Jesus. We will be seen together to be the body of Christ as followers of Jesus," said Selbo.

The Rt. Rev. Charlie Masters, Bishop of the Anglican Network in Canada, the Canadian branch of the ACNA, reinforced his country's involvement and praised the relationship with the American Lutheran body, and said the mission together was good for the cause of the gospel. "Both churches are eagerly seeking to grow as disciples of our Lord Jesus who told us to go out and make disciples."

There is deep irony in that the conference, which is expected to draw hundreds of conferees from across North America. It is taking place in the pseudo-evangelical Episcopal diocese of Central Florida and its charismatic bishop the Rt. Rev. Greg Brewer.
