WHAT TO EXPECT
  • Cohesive Anglican Presence: We want to see a strategic unity among Anglicans and other Ancient/Future congregations for the advance of the gospel. Hopefully this spirit can cross diocesan and denominational lines in a compelling demonstration of our unity in Christ.
  • Begin by creating a directory of congregations and clergy in the Sacramento Valley with whom we share this affinity 
  • Engage with existing systems such as “Serve Sacramento” to ease the material sufferings of others
  • Healthy Church Plants: The Dean and Servant Leadership Team will stay informed of trends and techniques in church planting, and regularly review progress in the deanery.
