Brotherhood of St. Andrew


The mission of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew is to bring men and youth to Christ. We seek to introduce our men’s ministry to all parishes in The Episcopal Church and Worldwide Anglican Communion. Our vision is to inspire, empower and equip men and boys to fulfill the Great Commission. 

Members are called Brothers Andrew and are required to accept and observe the Brotherhood disciplines of Prayer, Study, and Service.  Brotherhood chapters usually meet once or twice per month in Episcopal and Anglican churches. 

To pray daily for the spread of Christ’s kingdom, especially among men and youth, and for God’s blessings upon the labors of the Brotherhood

To study the Holy Scriptures regularly and the teachings of the Church, to attain a better understanding of how to follow Christ and bring others into His kingdom

To make continuous efforts, week by week, to bring others nearer to Christ through His Church

Seven Areas of Mission Focus 

  • Discipleship and Mentoring
  • Scouting
  • Restorative Justice
  • Veterans
  • Racial Reconciliation and Healing
  • Human Trafficking
  • Recovery
