Bishop's Recommendation

In addition to the above Requirements, each applicant must attach a letter of endorsement by an Anglican bishop or primate. These may be emailed directly to Peter Moore.


Our Commitment to Anglican Leadership Participants:

  • We commit to offer out participants a professional experience in leadership training

  • We commit to pay for their airfare (if coming from overseas) to Boston or Charleston, and back to their home countries

  • We commit to cover their stay in the USA with short-term health insurance (if they come from outside North America) and to provide each participant with primary care if an emergency arises

  • We commit to pay for all costs involved in the Institute, including curriculum, food and hospitality, and transportation within the local area

  • We commit to provide over-the-counter medications that may be needed for first aid, common colds, fevers, and other maladies

Our Participants' Commitment to the Anglican Leadership Institute:

  • Participants will cover the cost of obtaining a visa to the United States. In rare circumstances, ALI may offer a limited amount of money to assist with the cost of visas. This must be negotiated with the Institute before leaving for the USA

  • Participants will cover the cost of getting from their homes to the nearest international airport from which they will depart, and the cost of returning to their homes from that airport on their return

  • Participants will agree to preach or speak at churches in the USA if invited, without renumeration. This will not occur during the September Institutes

  • The ALI is not to be considered a fund-raising opportunity by participants while they are in the USA. Friendly contacts with Americans and others while here may lead to fundraising opportunities later, but not during the Institute

  • Participants will pay for electronic connections to the American electronic systems, or for other electronic devices (SIM cards, etc.) that they wish to purchase on arrival

  • Participants will pay for any overseas phone calls made during their stay in the USA if using a landline rather than their own cell phones or computers

  • Participants agree to give their full attention to all Institute meetings and not to use meeting times to email friends or conduct ministry long-distance

  • The use of cell phones during meetings will be frowned upon, either for texting or phoning, as will the use of computers to do email

  • Participants will accept whatever limitations they encounter regarding rooming with someone else, or the size of their beds. ALI will do our best to make sure everyone is comfortable

  • While people's preferences regarding food will be respected, the food that will be served will essentially reflect an American diet
