The Anglican Communion Office (ACO) is the secretariat of the Anglican Consultative Council. It provides support to the Instruments of Communion through which the Member Churches of the Anglican Communion express their common life. The ACO is led by its Secretary General, and this role is critical as the Communion seeks to build ever stronger relationships both within and outside the Church. The new Secretary General will be an enabler in mission and evangelism and will encourage growth within the Anglican Communion. They will assist the Communion to become even more faithful to and engaged in God’s mission of reconciliation.
The successful candidate will be a committed Christian, a person of deep faith and prayer, and a visionary ambassador for Christ and His Church.
They will lead the ACO at a critical time, as we approach the next Lambeth Conference, and be a bridge-builder, a creative and imaginative thinker, and an inspirational leader, who will help to renew the witness and effectiveness of the Communion, its structures, and its programmes.
