I. Vision: Who We Are

PEARUSA is a Missionary District (MD) and church planting movement of theAnglican Church of Rwanda (Province de L’Eglise Anglicane au Rwanda – PEAR) and a sub-jurisdiction of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). It is a movement of clergy and churches who are birthed in Rwanda, planted in North America, bearing fruit in our communities.

Birthed in Rwanda

PEARUSA’s relationship with Rwanda does not exist as a matter of utility. Rather, it is our Rwandan brothers’ and sisters’ pursuit of reconciliation, that church’s legacy of conciliar decision-making and governance, their commitment to prayer, transparency, and Gospel-driven mission that God first gave as hallmarks of the East African Revival, and their submission to Biblical truth rawanda.jpgthat binds their church to our own. PEARUSA is, in fact, being shaped by Rwanda in an ongoing relationship of friendship, collaboration, and discipleship as we move through life together with Christ Himself and as brothers and sisters in the Gospel. Through Rwanda, PEARUSA is also shaped by the Global South and through a growing coalition of confessional Anglicans gathering under through Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON). GAFCON’s common faith is clarified in the Jerusalem Declaration.

Planted in America

The people and churches who make up PEARUSA share a zeal for communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ by word and deed. We are united in our strategy of growth through planting churches. We are actively committed and involved on multiple levels with the growth of united, biblical, mission-driven Anglicanism in North America as a sub-jurisdiction of ACNA.

Bearing Fruit in our Communities

PEARUSA seeks to create and sustain life through

• proper episcopal and clerical order that proclaims the Gospel, serves sacrificially, builds teams, and equips and empowers others for ministry,
• a pervasive culture of healthy relationships, collaborative work, and Christian vitality,
• being transformed by the Gospel and by communicating that same Gospel through word and deed,
• training life-long missional leaders and church planters,
• planting churches for the work of Christ and the glory of God.


II. Our Role Within ACNApurchase-lapelping-image.png

PEARUSA stands committed to the vision articulated by the ACNA for united, Biblical, mission driven Anglicanism throughout our continent. PEARUSA enjoys full communion with ACNA as its sub-jurisdiction. This is best demonstrated by our financial commitments to ACNA, our representation at the ACNA Provincial Assembly, our representation in the Provincial Council and ACNA House of Bishops, and the freedom of both clergy and congregations to move between the Missionary District and ACNA. Above all else, PEARUSA seeks to offer its gifts, such as they are, to ACNA.
