As the diocese gets ready to celebrate the reopening of its third church in three years, Bishop Daniel Gutiérrez has been named to take on a new role leading church planting in the Anglican Communion. 

The Archbishop of Canterbury and the General Secretary of the Anglican Consultative Council have appointed Gutiérrez to serve on the Church Growth and Planting Commission for the Anglican Communion. This appointment was endorsed by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry as Gutiérrez will represent The Episcopal Church.

The Anglican Communion Church Planting Network – or Plant Anglican for short – is a global network within, or associated with the Anglican Communion, united in their passion to see new churches planted in every global community to reach new people with the good news of Jesus Christ. The primary aim of Plant Anglican is to be a resource that encourages fellow church planters to be as effective as possible in their own contexts. Members of Plant Anglican – bishops, clergy and laity - share a call from God to learn from each other and inspire one another to see God’s Kingdom expand to previously unreached areas, and flourish where His Church is already at work.
