Global Mission Partnerships
Rev. Canon William Beasley serves as Missioner General of the Chicago-based Greenhouse Movement—a missional movement for the global Anglican church. Deeply blessed by friendships in East Africa, South Asia, and South America, William is a leading voice calling Anglicans to global reciprocal mission—gospel mission from everywhere to everywhere. He served as the Chair of the 2017 Provincial Assembly of the Anglican Church of North America, gathering 1300 delegates from North America and visiting global leaders from 17 countries.
William graduated from Wheaton College in 1976 and Berkeley Divinity School at Yale where he was mentored by Henri Nouwen. He is married to Deacon Anne Beasley, and has four adult children: Andy, Sarah, Nate, and Sam.

The Global Mission Partnerships network envisions deeper collaboration around our heart mission: the gospel of Jesus Christ to redeem lives from the power of sin and reconcile the world. By God’s grace, will set a vision for a renewed global Anglican mission movement for the twenty-first century in the context of massive people movements, Global South revival and an increasingly post-Christian west.
Facilitated by the Rev. Canon William Beasley (Anglican Church in North America, Greenhouse Movement), our formation meetings were integral to the Gafcon 2018 Jerusalem as we gathered 74 ecclesial leaders, missional directors, and special guests. Our agenda was to begin strategy talks, encourage, and especially pray for a special pouring out of the Holy Spirit for mission, as in the days of Peter when he preached on the steps of the temple and 3000 were baptized in Jesus’ name.
For the next five years we have two proposals: a worldwide gathering of Next Generation Leaders for mission, and a Global Evangelism Initiative to empower every believer to share the gospel. We are forming six regional teams to collaborate on reciprocal mission: tentatively organized as Africa, South America, North America, Europe and Oceania, Asia, and Unreached Peoples.
Our key values include renewed life in the Holy Spirit: empowering all believers for ministry, reciprocal mutuality in mission: from everywhere to everywhere, and glocal thinking: mission in our neighborhood and linked with the church global.
