Anglican Alliance Announces New Executive Directors

September 16, 2013

The Most Rev. Albert Chama, Archbishop of Central Africa and Chair of the Anglican Alliance, has announced the appointment of the Rev. Rachel Carnegie and the Rev. Andrew Bowerman as the agency’s new executive directors.

The Anglican Alliance is a coordinating body of relief and development organizations within the Anglican Communion, which was created in response to calls for increased cooperation at the 2008 Lambeth Conference. The London-based secretariat was established in 2011 with former international development minister Sally Keeble as director.

“I am delighted that Rachel and Andy are taking on this important work,” said Rob Radtke, President of Episcopal Relief & Development, a member organization of the Anglican Alliance. “Episcopal Relief & Development looks forward to working with the Alliance in this next stage of its development. I give thanks for Sally Keeble’s leadership and vision.”

Episcopal Relief & Development is the international relief and development agency of The Episcopal Church and an independent 501(c)(3) organization. The agency takes its mandate from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25. Its programs work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Episcopal Relief & Development works closely with the worldwide Church and ecumenical partners to help rebuild after disasters and to empower local communities to find lasting solutions that fight poverty, hunger and disease, including HIV/AIDS and malaria.
