GAFCON Primates to meet in Lagos


GAFCON Primates to meet in Lagos


Peter Jensen

Next week, the Gafcon Primates arrive in Lagos, Nigeria, for the annual Primates Council meeting, between 25th - 27th April. I am writing to ask whether you would pray for this important gathering. Below are some specific points to help guide you.

Please pray for:

  • The safe arrival of the Primates (archbishops), representatives and advisers from Gafcon provinces and branches.
  • Clarity and understanding as the Council reviews Gafcon activity over the past 12 months (e.g. the inaugural Bishops Training Institute course) and considers a range of reports, including theological education and church planting.
  • Plans for the 2018 Gafcon Conference in Jerusalem next June.
  • Discussions about Gafcon policy in Communion matters and it's implementation.
  • Discussions about further expansion and funding of the movement.
  • The Gafcon chairman, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, as he leads the three-day meeting.
  • An uplifting time of fellowship.

Thank you so much for your prayers, they are greatly valued!

Your brother in Christ,

Peter Jensen
General Secretary
