WELCOME TO THE ARCHBISHOP'S SCHOOL FOR YOUNG LEADERS, WHERE WE ARE CALLING THE NEXT GENERATION OF THE ANGLICAN CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA

The Archbishop, as the senior bishop in the Anglican Church, is calling young leaders to join him in an experience built to explore leadership identity and to equip them to lead others. This experience is for students who were enrolled in 10-12th grade during the spring of 2021 and will be held virtually during the Provincial Council gathering, June 13-15, 2021. This experience is intended for any student leader committed to their community and church, and is not intended only for those exploring ordained ministry.

The Archbishop's School for Young Leaders (ASYL) provides an intimate view of leadership in the Anglican Church. During our time together, we’ll make new friends from across our province, learn from diverse speakers, worship together, reflect on our own life purpose and gifting, and have fun while doing so! This gathering will open a partnership between the young leaders of the next generation and the ACNA as these leaders launch their own contextualized project within the young leader’s community.

The Next Generation Leadership Initiative is raising up the next generation of leaders for the next generation of the ACNA.
The Anglican Church is YOUR church.
The Archbishop is empowering YOU to lead it well.

For more information, including details on how you’ll spend your time with us, please read this welcome letter.

To apply, complete this application by May 1st. We do expect your honesty and transparency in your responses. All applicants will be notified by May 12 as to their acceptance status for this June. Not every person who applies will be invited to ASYL. If you are not approved for this year, we will provide feedback on why and what to do between now and applying again. If accepted, there will be a $25 fee.

Join with young leaders from around the Anglican Church in North America to explore your identity as a leader, leaving equipped to lead teams of people, and empowered to begin a Kingdom project in your community. We are thrilled to take the next steps of leadership with you.

Lead on,

Rev. Aaron Buttery, Director of the Student Leadership Network of NGLI

Rev. Dr. Jessica Jones, Provincial Canon for Next Generation Leadership Initiative

Rt Rev. Steven Tighe, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Southwest
