SERVE OUR WORLD

Here is a brief overview of our current global and national ministry partners that Holy Trinity Anglican supports financially. Be amazed, touched and inspired by these ministries that are faithfully serving God through the building up of his church in their respective cities and countries. Pray for them and rejoice in what God is accomplishing. We are privileged to be a part of their good work.

In 2016 Archbishop Mouneer Anis, Bishop of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa, asked the Holy Trinity Anglican Outreach committee to support The Alexandria School of Theology located in Cairo Egypt. It is the only Anglican theological institution in the Middle East that teaches primarily in Arabic. Its mission is to teach, train and form lay leaders, ordinands and clergy of our Diocese, members of the world-wide Anglican Communion, and any other student who wishes to learn of Christ. Holy Trinity agreed to partner with them by providing a four-year scholarship for one of their students. 2019 is the final year of that scholarship.

The Anglican Diocese of N. Western Australia, under Bishop Gary Nelson, is an extremely vast area of small remote towns, and it is very challenging to oversee. Over the past several years, Western Australia has experienced a significant economic downturn that has had drastic consequences in the life of their small-town churches. Some towns have had a considerable drop in population and hence the churches have suffered a consequent loss in congregation numbers. The Diocese of N. Western Australia has had to rely on outside areas for 60% of their support.

Holy Trinity Anglican partners with ARDF in order to connect with those in need around the world.

Heart’s Cry’s main mission is to care for orphans in their distress. Their vision is to create efficiencies and effectiveness for orphan care around the world, beginning in the Republic of Panama. In order to streamline adoption and foster care processes, and to simplify efforts in placing children into loving homes in the Republic of Panama, Heart’s Cry provides legal, social, psychological and spiritual support for Panamanian families and permanent residents throughout the adoption and foster process.

Heart’s Cry also established Casa Providencia, which was created to be a special needs home and therapy center specially designed for children deprived of parental rights in Panama. Casa Providencia provides a place for the special needs orphans where they receive physical and occupational therapy on a daily basis, as well as early childhood stimulation.

Five Talents is a Christian development organization serving the poor alongside partner churches within the Anglican Communion. It was formed at the Lambeth Conference in 1998, in response to dire poverty church leaders in the global south faced within their church communities. Currently, Five Talent’s ministries serve vulnerable communities in South Sudan, Burundi, Indonesia, Myanmar, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and the Dominican Republic of Congo.

Five Talent’s vision is to eradicate extreme poverty by restoring human dignity and creating strong, sustainable communities. Their mission is to accomplish this by transforming lives through economic empowerment. They help create jobs by helping the poor develop their own businesses through sound business training, access to community loans and participation in community savings programs. These businesses provide jobs in their communities — all started with small amounts of money that go a long way in developing countries. The dignity that comes to the poor that are involved in these programs helps defeat the circumstances of poverty.

Through the SAMS organization, Holy Trinity Anglican supports two missionary couples:

  • Rev. Kerry and Cynthia Buttram who are working with the Diocese of Egypt in Cairo
  • Johann and Louise Vanderbijl who have spent many years working throughout the African continent.

The vision of Anglican Frontier Missions (AFM) is to see viable, biblically-based, indigenous churches multiplying in all the 6,000 plus unreached people groups of the world (approximately 1.75 billion people). To accomplish this vision, AFM travels to churches, youth meetings and conferences to educate, challenge and train both short- and long-term missionaries to go where the need is greatest (where the church does not yet exist).

AFM targets only unreached peoples and unchristianized areas. They do not send missionaries to areas where the church is sufficiently numerous to evangelize and minister to their own (i.e., South America, Central America, Uganda, Rwanda). One of the annual strategic objectives is to raise up five new missionaries to go serve in a city or region where the church is not.

Trinity School for Ministry is an evangelical seminary in the Anglican tradition. In this fractured world they desire to be a global center for Christian formation, producing outstanding leaders who can plant, renew and grow churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Among their many values are serving the Church faithfully, planting deep formational roots in communities, providing excellent teaching and scholarship, creating life-long learners and trusting God’s provision.

The American Anglican Council (AAC) provides training and support for congregations and leaders in North America, focusing on Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) leaders and members. AAC’s Clergy Leadership Training Institute (CLTI) and Rector’s Summit for Vision and Planning (RSVP) provide leadership development for the Anglican community.

Additionally, the AAC works with congregations and their leadership teams, clergy and lay to move from maintenance to mission, through church revitalization workshops and coaching. AAC also consults with and supports Anglicans in England, Africa and Australia, and other countries as requested.
