Christ Church is an Anglican Communion Network (ACN) Parish
The Anglican Communion Network is a 'gathering place' for Biblically Orthodox believers in the Anglican tradition. The Network was chartered in January 2004, primarily in response to the unfaithful actions of the 2003 General Convention of the Episcopal Church, USA. We are committed to upholding the unchanging truth and authority of God's Word in love, and to the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The core purpose of the ACN is "t
o be a united missionary movement of Anglicans in fellowship with global Anglicanism, making disciples who make disciples of Jesus Christ and planting churches that plant churches in North America and to the ends of the earth."

Christ Church is located in the ACN Mid-Continental Convocation.
The Mid-Continental Convocation was established to support and care for individual parishes and congregations in the central part of the US who are not within a Network diocese, but who wish to be affiliated with the network.

The Mid-Continental Convocation includes 34 Dioceses in the area generally covered by ECUSA Provinces V, VI, and VII in the states of Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.  

Five Dioceses in the Mid-Continental Convocation are already associated with the ACN.  They are Rio Grande, Dallas, Fort Worth, Quincy, and Springfield.

The Dean of the Mid Continental Convocation is the Rev D. O. Smart.   He is assisted by the Convocation Administrative Assistant, Sally Cline.
