Administrative history

The Global Anglican Future Conference is a global network of evangelical Anglicans. Their stated aim is to "guard and proclaim the unchanging, transforming Gospel through biblically faithful preaching and teaching which frees our churches to make disciples by clear and certain witness to Jesus Christ in all the world." They have held three conferences: Jerusalem 2008, when the seminal Jerusalem Statement was formulated, Nairobi 2013 and Jerusalem 2018. It is led by a Council of Primates, GAFCON Guarantors who oversee vision, strategy and resources, and GAFCON Trustees who ensure legal compliance. Bishop Peter Jensen was the first General Secretary. The Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans is a company set up at the request of the Primates' Council under English charitable law.
