statement in response to the consecration of Jonathan Pryke

The Executive Committee recently requested that the GAFCON Primates support the consecration of a Missionary Bishop. We were overjoyed when they agreed to do this for the sake of gospel growth.

We can confirm that the consecration of the Revd Jonathan Pryke was a gospel decision taken independently of . His consecration was never discussed at our Executive meetings.

Jonathan is a valued member of the Exec and we are thankful to God for his abundant gifts and wisdom. We will be praying for him in this new season of his ministry.
