Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who is interested in thinking about and celebrating ordained ministry; for any who have a burden for proclaiming Christ to a lost and broken world in need of healing and redemption. This conference was conceived as a place to have a conversation about what this looks like in the Anglican tradition, and to give missional, Gospel-burdened young adults a space in which to reflect on their vocation, i.e. calling. In short, this conference is an opportunity for you to consider whether God is calling you to a life of dynamic ministry in the great tradition of the ancient Church. You do not at all need to be an Anglican to come to this conference. All are strongly encouraged to attend. Seasoned clergy are especially encouraged to come, and to bring along young men and women who may be inspired to think about their own vocation.

‘Anglicanism’ describes the distinct theological tradition which arose out of the Church of England after the Reformation. Anglicanism is most definitely indebted to the Reformation for its commitment to the Word of God and proclaiming the grace of God given to us in Jesus Christ, but is somewhat unusual among the Reformation churches in retaining many of the characteristics of the ancient church, such as liturgy, sacraments, and the three-fold ministry of bishop, priest, and deacon. The Anglican Communion is the third-largest communion of churches worldwide (behind only the Roman Catholics and the Eastern Orthodox) and has a historic commitment to taking the Gospel to the least and to the lost, even to the ends of the earth. To become Anglican is to find oneself in the great tradition of the Church, in communion with the Christians of the first century, and in fellowship with a wonderfully diverse body of Christians across the globe today.

The priesthood is undoubtedly a hard life. And it truly is a radical vocation, permanently changing your identity and asking you to give all for the sake of Christ and his Church. But for those who are hearing the call to the ministry of Word and Sacrament, the only way to find peace and gratification is to embrace that calling and be what the Holy Spirit is calling you to be. There’s simply nothing better than sharing in the ministry of Jesus Christ, the great shepherd of the sheep, watching his flock flourish and grow in his love and grace. If this resonates with you, you owe it to Christ, his Church, and yourself to spend a season in discernment with the Church. This conference is an unprecedented opportunity to begin to do just that. Join us for what is sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience. Who knows, it just may change your life.

That’s more than ok. If you want to be used by God to bring the Gospel to those who need it, we want you to join us, regardless of your level of education. Formation comes after discernment. For now, we invite you to listen, to pray, to ponder. This conference is for all ages and stages of life and ministry, whether you’re discerning your own calling, or you’re already in full-time ministry and interested in bringing along and encouraging those at the beginning stages.
