Disciple Life 2020


image

The first ever joint conference between the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and the North American Lutheran Church (NALC) will be held February 13-15, 2020 at the Sheraton Orlando North Hotel, Orlando, Florida.

The Anglican Church in North America and the North American Lutheran Church would both describe themselves as “Great Commission” churches—committed to the Lord’s charge to “Go, make disciples…baptize…teach…” (Matthew 28:19-20). Other Christian bodies in North America share the same focus, but lack the commitment to the key role of Word and Sacrament in forming Christians who will be disciples and followers of Jesus, intentionally, authentically and with accountability. Essential to such forming of disciples is community, and developing congregational cultures which foster and support disciple-making. As simple as they sound, disciple-making and creating congregations with disciple-making cultures are not familiar or comfortable to most Lutherans and Anglicans in the 21st Century!

Join us for this opportunity for biblically-grounded Anglicans and Lutherans to meet together, get to know one another and network for greater mission and ministry in local contexts; and to acknowledge and embrace “small steps” toward disciple-making at the local level—fostering an “awakening toward action,” regardless of the size of the congregation, or the experience of clergy and laity; and to return home encouraged and empowered to get involved, to get motivated and to get moving with regard to being disciples and making disciples!

Prayer for Discipleship Life 2020

Our loving Heavenly Father, we give you thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Through him You have reconciled the world to Yourself and called us to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit; and to teach everything he commanded us.  We pray for the Disciple Life Conference in February in Orlando, where Anglican and Lutheran Christians will meet together.  We pray that You would renew and equip us for the ministry of making disciples.  Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon our churches.  Empower us to make disciples.  Enable us to share the love of Christ with all people.  Raise up laborers/labourers for the harvest as we pray, learn, and worship together.  In all things may we work as one to bring glory to Your Name so that the world may come to acknowledge Your Son as Lord and Savior.  “Now to him whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to him from generation to generation in the Church, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever. Amen.
