Three New Bishops Elected to Serve in the Anglican Mission
The House of Bishops of the
Province of the Anglican Church of Rwanda (PEAR), meeting in Kigali
June 12-13, 2009, elected three missionary bishops, appointing them to
serve in the Anglican Mission in the Americas (AMiA). The Rev. Dr.
Todd Hunter, leader of the Anglican Mission’s Western Initiative called
Churches for the Sake of Others; the Rev. Canon Doc Loomis, Canon
Missioner for the Anglican Mission; and the Rev. Silas TAK Yin Ng,
Rector of Richmond Emmanuel, British Columbia, will be consecrated in
In presenting candidates to fellow bishops, the Rt. Rev. Charles H.
Murphy, III, Anglican Mission Chairman, noted that these new bishops
would enhance the expansion of the Anglican Mission, particularly in
the western regions of the US and in Canada. The House of Bishops
responded to the nominations with a unanimous election and the release
of an official Communiqué announcing their decision.
“Once again, we are grateful for the consistent trust and support
demonstrated by the Rwanda House of Bishops,” said Bishop Murphy. “As
the Anglican Mission grows and expands west of the Mississippi,
additional bishops will assist us in our mission to reach those who do
not yet know the saving power of Jesus Christ.”
“Todd, Doc and Silas are men of faith, vision and passion, and they
also have a strong track record of proven results,” Bishop Murphy
added. “I have no doubt that each will add unique gifts to the Council
of Bishops and will work effectively to expand the Kingdom of God in
our missionary movement.”
The Anglican Mission’s Council of Bishops is charged with providing
oversight to clergy, congregations and Mission Networks; casting the
“big picture” vision for the Anglican Mission; and ensuring theological
alignment with historic Christianity as received by the one holy
catholic and apostolic Church. The work of the Council of Bishops
represents a careful balance of oversight between “what already is”
within the Mission, and an ongoing commitment to both envision and
implement “what is yet to be.”
The bishops-elect will be consecrated in September, and specific details will be announced when arrangements are finalized.
