Register to attend! We have a special opportunity to hear from the AAC on two topics of particular relevance as we consider the state of our world and culture today. The Rev. Canon Phil Ashey will address how we as Anglicans fit into the global Church and Dr. Adam MacLeod, law professor at Faulkner and AAC Trustee, will discuss the intersection of faith, culture and Anglicanism during this period of cultural decline. Stay for dessert following their presentations. We’ll meet in the Courtyard classroom.
About Our Speakers
Canon Phil Ashey is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Anglican Council. Phil grew up in a Christian family, a “priest’s kid” and gave his life to Christ in 1968. A graduate of Stanford and Loyola Law School, he served as a Deputy DA in Orange County California. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1988, and spent twenty years leading Episcopal and Anglican congregations of all sizes in California, Virginia and Pittsburgh—thirteen as a Rector and Church planter, and seven as a Senior Associate. Phil’s focus and passion is to develop Biblically faithful leaders at all levels of the Church—both here in North America and across the Anglican Communion. In 2015 he received his LLM in Canon Law from Cardiff University (Wales UK) and now serves as Special Counsel to the Archbishop, Advisor to the GAFCON Primates, and leads Lawyers Networks in both ACNA and Gafcon. He is also the author of Anglican Conciliarism: The Church Meeting to Decide Together (2017, Anglican House).
