Anglicans Planting 1000 New Churches In Next Five Years

Check out this quote from ACNA Bishop Robert Duncan:

RNS Feature: "No longer Episcopalians, Anglicans launch own church":
"In his sermon, Duncan urged those who align themselves with ACNA to focus on evangelism and mission by planting 1,000 new churches in the next five years, engaging Islam—“because there is only one way to the Father; it’s a matter of life and death”—studying Scripture and practicing works of mercy."
Let's do the math: 1000 churches in 5 years is 200 churches per year or approximately 17 churches a month or 1+ churches every other day. Seriously. That's ambitious. The article mentions that they are starting with 650 churches representing 69,000 Anglicans.

I love the missional heart of this new Anglican group. They are finding their identity in church planting and North American missions, instead of finding it in being ex-Episcopalians or victims.
