The Anglican Mission in America Leadership

The leadership of The Anglican Mission in America (AMiA) is simply constructed so as to keep the mission of AMiA central. As a people of shared vision and values, mission is what we do, and society is how we organize.

We are an Anglican Society of Mission and Apostolic Works operating under a constitution, statutes and theological vision that orders our common life, giving direct ecclesiastical authority of the Anglican Mission in America to the Lead Bishop. Assisting the Lead Bishop in maintaining the vison and mission of AMiA is the Staff, Council of Bishops, Leadership Team and Board of Directors.
