Churches for the sake of others (C4so)

The Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO) is an Anglican diocese built on five key values: Kingdom, Spirit, Formation, Mission, and Sacrament.

C4SO began as a church planting movement in 2009 in the Anglican Mission in the Americas. The Anglican Church in North America’s Provincial Council approved our formation as a diocese in June 2013, and our common life is ordered by our C4SO Constitution and Canons. Now, we unite churches and leaders located primarily in California, Texas, the Midwest, the Southwest, and the Southeast, organized by Regional Deaneries. In these diverse contexts, we seek to develop ministry from the mission field back—contextualizing our tradition for a given ministry setting. We are also involved in planting churches in collaboration with other dioceses and denominations throughout the United States.
