According to Paul, a church leader is ‘an overseer of God’s household’ (Titus 1:7).
At this year’s Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference (JAEC), we will be thinking about what it means to be part of this household. The main sessions will examine the traditional orders of bishop, presbyter and deacon, as well as the place of the laity within the household. As always, we will conclude with the Conference Sermon, given by a bishop, and this year Bishop Richard Jackson will be speaking on ‘Expanding the Household’, encouraging us in the work of evangelism. In the seminars, there will be chance to consider specific aspects of service in the household of God, managing your own household, and going forward for ordained service in the Church of England (this session is led by an assistant DDO). Speakers include Mel Lacy, Rob Munro, Richard Jackson, Andy Greenhough, Richard Jackson, and several Church Society staff members.
JAEC is specifically for those who are ‘junior’, that is anyone considering ministry in the Church of England, lay or ordained, through training, curacy and the first few years of incumbency or the equivalent. The conference aims to help anyone in that category be more effective as an Anglican Evangelical, making the most of every opportunity to reach the lost for Jesus, build up the church through his word, and send workers into God’s harvest field.
In 2022, JAEC will run from Tuesday 30th August to Thursday 1st September, and will be held at King’s Park Conference Centre in Northampton.
