The Most Reverend Dr. Foley Beach is the Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America in 2014. He is also the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the South, headquartered in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.

Archbishop Beach is a graduate of Georgia State University, the University of the South, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He began his ministry by serving teenagers through Young Life. Prior to serving as archbishop and bishop, he planted and led Holy Cross Anglican Church in Loganville, Georgia.

The scripture verse that has most guided his ministry is Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (ESV)

Archbishop Beach can be heard on radio stations in the U.S. and around the world via his teaching ministry, A Word from the Lord, and his One-Minute Message, an evangelism outreach to the unchurched.

He and his wife are life-long Georgians, and have two adult children.

The Rev. Canon David Roseberry is the Dean of the Diocese of C4SO and Provincial Canon for Mission of the ACNA. He has served the church over the past 3 decades and now is Executive Director of LeaderWorks, a leadership-development platform that helps develop and train leaders and churches to do even great works in their ministry.

Fr. Roseberry is married and a father of four children; a grandfather to five. He lives in Plano, TX. For 31 years he was Rector of Christ Church in Plano, TX until stepping aside to develop and head LeaderWorks.

Primarily, he is a minister of the Gospel of Christ, but he serves the church and others as an encouraging mentor, a friend to leaders, a visionary thinker and planner, and a pastor to the people of God. He preaches and teaches the Scriptures with clarity and conviction.
