The Rev. Alan Hawkins Named Vicar of Anglican 1000

Congratulations to the Rev. Alan Hawkins. Read about his appointment at the ACNA website:

As Provincial Assembly kicked off on Thursday, June 7 in Ridgecrest, N.C., Archbishop Robert Duncan made the exciting announcement that The Rev. Alan Hawkins has answered the call to serve the Province as Vicar of the Anglican 1000 movement. In his new role as Vicar (Provincial Director), Hawkins will be the provincial catalyst for making church planting the central enterprise of the Anglican Church in North America. As Anglican 1000 moves into this new phase, the headquarters will be relocated to the provincial office just outside of Pittsburgh, Pa.

“It is humbling and a privilege to be called to serve in this capacity. Anglican 1000 is a cornerstone of the Anglican Church in North America and I look forward to being able to encourage and support the planting of new churches in our tradition throughout North America,” said The Rev. Alan Hawkins.

The Rev. Alan Hawkins is currently rector of Church of the Redeemer, a PEAR USA congregation in Greensboro, N.C. He has worked closely with Anglican 1000 over the years as he has planted three churches and recently served as the coordinator of the Simeon Fellowship , a peer-to-peer fellowship of rectors to facilitate and encourage Gospel-centered Anglican church planting throughout North America by emulating the life and ministry of Charles Simeon. Hawkins’ current congregation, Church of the Redeemer, grew from a core group of 20 to nearly 160 people today…more
