But there’s a problem.
Anglicanism can be confusing and contentious.
Perhaps you’ve experienced this firsthand. The Anglican tradition looks appealing from a distance but, up close, it can be quite messy.
And it’s been this way for quite some time. Over the centuries, Anglicans have spilled ink and shed blood trying to define what’s truly “Anglican” and what’s not. These days, you can ask a group of 10 Anglicans a question and receive 15 different answers!
It’s easy to find Anglican jargon and arguments out there, but it’s hard to find clear and charitable guides to the Anglican tradition.
It shouldn’t be this difficult to navigate such a rich and beautiful tradition!
There’s too much at stake!
We don’t want anyone to miss out on the riches of the Anglican tradition.
We don’t want to draw a blank when asked to explain Anglicanism to someone else.
We don’t want to get sucked into a strand of Anglican fundamentalism, without a healthy appreciation for Anglicanism’s diversity.
That’s where we come in.
We help you navigate the Anglican tradition with clarity and charity.
Clarity: We’re committed to maintaining Christian orthodoxy (including a traditional sexual ethic) and communicating as clearly as possible.
Charity: We’re committed to loving others well (even/especially when we disagree with them) and only engaging with the strongest versions of their arguments.
We serve as leaders in the Anglican tradition because we’re convinced that Anglicanism has a lot to offer Christ’s global church. And we created Anglican Compass because we’re convinced that clarity and charity need to win out over confusion and contention.
We want what’s best for you and for the Church.
We don’t want you to be confused or frustrated by Anglicanism.
Instead, we want you to be able to competently and confidently navigate the Anglican tradition for the sake of Christ’s Church.
We can teach you how to enjoy the rhythms and stability of the Anglican tradition.
We can help you appreciate the diversity of the global Anglican Communion and the global Church.
If you resonate with this message, here’s what we’re asking you to do.
1. Spread the word.
If you have a blog or a website, then linking to our content is also very helpful!
2. Make a small monthly pledge through Patreon.

3. Make a one-time donation through Aplos.
These donations go to our publishing organization, LeaderWorks. You can also make a monthly donation this way, but you won’t get the Patreon perks!
