BB NOTE: Michael Howell was one of the few orthodox voices on the official General Convention “Special Committee 26” that reviewed all the legislation regarding compliance (or lack thereof) with the Windsor Report and the Primates’ Dromantine Communique at the last General Convention in Columbus. His appointment as Executive Director of Forward in Faith is very good news for the historic partnership between orthodox evangelicals and Anglo Catholics – not only for the Common Cause Partnership, but most especially in the development of the new Anglican Province in North America. Very good news, indeed.
Forward in Faith North America (FiF NA) announces the appointment of Dr. Michael W. Howell as its new Executive Director. Dr. Howell’s appointment will officially begin on January 1, 2009, but he has wasted no time in assuming some duties of his future office. Dr. Howell, a former Associate Professor at the University of South Florida, currently serves on the boards of FiFNA, the American Anglican Council, and Trinity School for Ministry.
“I have never been more excited about the role that FiFNA will play in the new emerging Anglican Church in North America. We are committed to preaching and spreading of the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe the leaders of the Anglican Communion recognize the need for an orthodox (believing) Province in North America. Now more than ever, we need to ensure that Anglicanism’s Catholic heritage and order will continue to grow and thrive within the context of a mission oriented, biblically-grounded emerging North American Province,” stated Dr. Howell in an interview following his appointment.
