At the ‘Evangelion’ conference of Evangelicals in the Episcopal Church held at Trinity School for Ministry in 2016, three ideas for the future found widespread support: renewing our connection with Evangelicals in the rest of the Anglican Communion through the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion (EFAC); getting together annually; and participation in our events by Evangelicals who are members of the various Anglican churches that have come into existence outside TEC in recent years.
Following discussions among former board members of EFAC-USA, the American branch of EFAC, EFAC-USA will reorganise under a board of directors composed of equal numbers of TEC and ACNA members, and have its first annual Assembly at the Canterbury Retreat and Conference Center outside Orlando, Florida from April 19-21 2017. The theme of the conference is ‘Positively Evangelical’, and speakers include Greg Brewer, Andrew Pearson and Charlie Holt. All Anglican Evangelicals in the USA, whether in TEC or another church of the Anglican tradition, are invited to attend; to register, check the new EFAC-USA website, which will shortly be available at www.EFAC-USA.org, or go to the EFAC-USA Facebook page (Facebook.com/EFACUSA).
More information will be also posted on this blog. Please pray for a renewal of effective evangelical witness to the Episcopal Church and to the other American churches in the Anglican tradition.
