Good Shepherd Missions Moment

May 2024 Missions Moment

The Reformed Episcopal Board of Foreign Mission has organized a mission trip to a church planting training  in Croatia this summer from June 1-8.  While we at Good Shepherd won’t be able to join them physically on this trip, we can support them in prayer as they come together to focus on the work of advancing the gospel in central Europe.  Read a description below from Rev. Michael Vinson, the rector of St. Benedict's Anglican Church in Rockwall, Texas who will be leading this trip with Bishop John Boonzaaijer:

Bishops, clergy, and church planters from Germany, Holland, Croatia, Serbia, and the Free Church of England will attend a church planting training in Croatia. The training will include visits to various parishes and church plants, providing an opportunity to connect with European partner churches. Through this training, attendees will witness how the church re-evangelizes Europe by using parish ministry and church planting to spread the Gospel.

  • In May at the REC’s Women's Day event, an offering will be taken to support missionaries Gerhard and Grace Meyer, who will soon retire after 50 years’ service in Germany. During his ministry, Bishop Meyer has overseen several missions, supervised students at Saint Benedict Seminary in Schwarzenborn, and assisted his wife, Grace, at several Christian camps, including one that welcomes English-speaking high schoolers from the US.

March 2024 Missions Moment

  • Does the Anglican Church care about missions?  Aren't we instructed in the Great Commission to "go and make disciples of all nations"? Is there such as thing as an Anglican missionary?  The answer to all this questions is "Yes!"  The REC Board of Foreign Missions ( is active around the world, and we have the opportunity to partner with them by supporting missions with prayers and donations, and even in some cases, missions trips.  This "Missions Moment" paragraph will be appearing once a month as a place for you to learn about some of the REC missionaries, and will help acquaint you with their work and locations around the world.  The more we learn, the better we are able to pray for them and support them in this important work of taking the gospel to all nations.  For more information please speak with Betsy LeGrand.
