Who We Are

The Episcopal Majority is a grassroots organization committed to the values and vitality of The Episcopal Church and working to neutralize the negative influence of the American Anglican Council (AAC), the Anglican Communion Network (ACN), and related groups. The impetus for our group began in Columbus, Ohio, during the recent General Convention of The Episcopal Church. Initially, we were a group of former university chaplains, but our membership has grown to include many people and organizations from different places (both theologically and geographically). We welcome their participation.

We have felt for some time that there needed to be an organized response to the well-financed and well-organized groups whose words and actions have been largely destructive. Many others, clergy and lay alike, are looking for ways to counteract the damage done and to build a coalition representing the majority of The Episcopal Church.

Additional signatories are being sought, and this list is updated periodically to reflect those.

News Flash 08.25.06: We have now established an e-mail account. If you want to be included in this list, please use the "Contact Us" button, located in the upper left section of this page, in the “About …” links. At a minimum, please include your title (the Rev., Ms., Dr., etc), name, and diocese. You may also note the name of your parish and town, but we are not publishing those in this list.

Lisa,

I was involved in campus ministry in the 1970's and early '80's. This list reads like a class reunion. Is a membership structure being considered? How can an individual get more involved? I can understand why you and toe-walker haven't posted to your own blogs much - you've been so busy on this one! Keep up the great work, please!!!

Why do you see the AAC and ACN as having a negative influence. They believe differently from you. Both 'sides' are polar opposites. It is simply a fact. You both are in total disagreement about Christianity. So split -it's the healthiest thing to do. But it shouldn't be a battle. It should be as amicble as possible. don't you think so?

Let me also add this reminder for some others: In this list, we are only adding members of The Episcopal Church. As many of you know, TEC includes people in [if I'm not mistaken] 16 different nations. That includes the Philippines, I'm proud to say!

Welcome aboard, Maurice.

This initiative can only deepen our divisions. Forming an organisation with the sole object of opposing other people in not the way to heal our Church. Most observers (left, right and centre) acknowledge that we are now two churches under one roof (including +Katharine). Should our energies not be more wisely used at finding a way in which the two can pursue their own individual identities and futures with an outcome that is 'win/win'.
Please, in the name of the Prince of Peace let's divorce amicably.

The Duke, I think you're confusing The Episcopal Majority with solme other sites. Want to talk about "Forming an organisation with the sole object of opposing other people"? Can you spell A-A-C? or A-C-N? They are FOR nothing, but against the Episcopal Church!

We are one church, but with about 10% of our membership acting like yapping pitbulls who want to hate women, hate gay people, and want bigger, even pointier hats! Let them take whatever crumbs +Akinola gives them and good riddance!

A key question: How can we support the important work of this group financially? Jim

James, we don't yet have a mechanism for financial support. But some folks are working on it now, as we are beginning to incur some expenses.

If you are interested and want to be kept informed of news on that or other topics, please send an e-mail to us by using the "Contact Us" button at the upper-left sidebar. That will let us keep in touch as our plans develop.

Mr. Morgan, I will add your name in my next update. And honored to do so. By the way, are you aware that the President of The Episcopal Majority started his priestly career at Grace & Holy Trinity in KC? Small world, eh?

Please add my name to your list. In this Age of the use of the name Christianity to advance agendas of seperation and hate, it is an honor to be associated with those who practice the Christianity my mother taught me.

I had an Uncle who used to tell me that I wanted to be good because come Judgement Day those who led the best lives got good seats in the celestial stadium where God would confront those who had used His and His Son's name in vain--- hope to see you all in the Box Seats.
