Episcopal Diocese of Washington

Engaging a changing world with
an enduring faith in Jesus Christ

Southern Africa Partnership Committee

The Southern Africa Partnership Committee (SAPC) was formed in early 2004 to coordinate the Episcopal Diocese of Washington (EDOW)'s partnership with the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA) Anglican Church of Southern Africa.  When the partnership began, then-Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane said, "We cannot choose our human family and we cannot choose our Christian family either. Our job is to recognize that we belong to God and we belong together."
