Raising Up Leaders

The mission of the Next Generation Leadership Initiative is to discoverdevelop, and deploy leaders and ministry resources for the Anglican Church in North America.

Next Generation

In the next decade, a significant number of our existing clergy will retire, and we currently do not have a sufficient amount of young, talented leaders to replace them or to start new ministries.


Our network leaders are focused on raising leaders to bridge the significant gaps in the current outreach of the ACNA where we do not have an organized presence or unified vision.


Archbishop Foley Beach has established six ministry priorities to serve those at the local level by coming alongside them with support, resources, and networking. NGLI is one of these 6 prioritized areas of ministry.

Next Generation Leadership Initiative is a key ministry of the Anglican Church in North America, a church that is faithful to the Great Tradition, just in its concern for the needy, and as multi-ethnic as the Kingdom is.
