On Saturday, February 10, 2018, members and friends of the Diocese of Western Anglicans are invited to join together in a day of Mission Partnership.
The purpose for this event is to build awareness of, and participation in, the mission priorities being pursued by the Diocese of Western Anglicans. These priorities include:
- Anglican Urban Initiative
- Belize – Fr. David and Mary Beth Alenskis
- Bolivia – Fr. Bely and Claire Soleto
- Hispanic Mission Initiative – Fr. Juan and Maria Merentes
- Thailand/Malaysia Partnership – Fr. Lee and Pum Mullins; Deacon Steve Krimmel
- University Mission Initiative
There are three ways you can get involved:
Congregations, prayer teams, small groups, and individuals can join in a day of fasting and prayer between 6am and 6pm. The day will be broken up into six two-hour blocks associated with the six ministry initiatives. To sign up for a prayer time at the following link:
If you are in the southern California area, join us for the The Six Peak Partnership Challenge! Six San Diego area peaks have been chosen corresponding to the Diocese’s six mission priorities. During each of the two-hour blocks, a team of people will hike one of the six peaks as follows:
Time Initiative Peak
6am to 8am Belize Partnership North Fortuna Mtn
8am to 10am Hispanic Mission Initiative South Fortuna Mtn
10am to 12pm Bolivia Partnership Kwaay Paay Peak
12pm to 2pm University Mission Initiative Cowles Mountain
2pm to 4pm Anglican Urban Initiative Pyles Peak
4pm to 6pm Thailand Partnership Mount Helix
Hiking teams will also be praying for each priority at the base before starting, then praying for future goals once the team reaches the summit. Individuals participating in the hikes are welcome to climb more than one peak. Click on the link below to sign up for a hiking team!
In order to further these mission priorities, the Day of Mission Partnership will be raising support in conjunction with the Six Peak Challenge. The basic sponsorship scheme is a $10 pledge for each peak climbed, or $60 for the entire event. With 36 congregations in the DoWA, the goal is to identify ten people in each congregation who will make the $60 pledge, or some other appropriate combination of people and pledges, for a total of $600 per congregation, or $21,600 for the event.
