Bishop Tengatenga PROVIDED

The Rt. Rev. James Tengatenga, a distinguished leader and teacher in the worldwide Anglican Communion, will visit Charleston in November as the preacher for the 224th annual Convention of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina.

Bishop Tengatenga will give the sermon at the opening Eucharist on Nov. 14 as Episcopalians across eastern South Carolina gather for the two-day convention at the Church of the Holy Communion, 218 Ashley Ave. in Charleston.

Bishop Tengatenga is the chairman of the Anglican Consultative Council, one of the four “Instruments of Communion” that serve the worldwide family of Anglican/Episcopal churches. He served as bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Southern Malawi in southeastern Africa from 1998-2013.

In May, he was appointed as “Distinguished Visiting Professor of Global Anglicanism” at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, where he teaches courses in missiology, contemporary global Anglicanism and related subjects.

Bishop Tengatenga has been a member of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) since 2002 and has been its chairman since 2009. The role of the ACC is to facilitate the cooperative work of the churches of the Anglican Communion, exchange information between the provinces and churches, and help to coordinate common action. As chairman, Bishop Tengatenga also serves as chairman of the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion.
