The Anglican Church in North America recently featured our ministry in an article in The Apostle. Read it here.
We are a campus ministry at Texas A&M University and church plant in the Bryan - College Station community. We are a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, a diocese of the Anglican Church in North America.
Anglican Aggies began in the Fall semester of 2011 by a group of Anglican students desiring to establish a campus ministry at Texas A&M University. For years there had been a need for a biblical and orthodox spiritual home for Anglican students who could not find solid Christian teachings and fellowship in local Episcopal churches. The large number of youth from the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth attending A&M made establishing a campus ministry easy. With the support of Bishop Iker, a rotation of priests willing to come down to say Mass was established, and in the Fall semester of 2012, regular Masses began to be held as a pastoral ministry to the group. Weekly bible studies and social events also began to be held regularly.
In Spring of 2014, Fr. Lee Nelson, SSC, vicar of Christ Church Waco, was appointed as chaplain and campus minister by Bishop Iker.
Although we are a newly formed fellowship, we are growing both in numbers and in enthusiasm for the work God has given us.
