The Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) has named the Rev. Alan Hawkins to serve as the Vicar of the Anglican 1000 movement, Archbishop Robert Duncan told delegates to the church’s 2nd Provincial Assembly.
Archbishop Duncan told delegates on the opening day of the 7-9 June 2012 meeting in Ridgecrest, N.C., that Mr. Hawkins, the rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Greensboro, NC, will supervise the province’s church planting initiative – a work the archbishop characterized as being the “central” program of the province.
In a statement released by the ACNA, Mr. Hawkins said it was “humbling and a privilege” to head up the work of Anglican 1000, the “cornerstone of the Anglican Church in North America and I look forward to being able to encourage and support the planting of new churches in our tradition throughout North America.”
At the 1st Provincial Assembly in 2009, Archbishop Duncan challenged the ACNA to plant 1000 congregations within five years. Assembly Archbishop Duncan called upon the ACNA to plant 1000 new congregations. The rector of Christ Church Plano, the Rev. Canon David Roseberry and the Rev. Daniel Adkinson answered the archbishop’s call by helping start a church planning program that has helped spur the ACNA’s rapid growth over the past three years.
