Te Oranga Ake o Te Iwi, o Te Ao

The flourishing of all people, and of all creation

I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
– John 10.10


The Anglican Indigenous Leadership Initiative (AILI) is a cooperative of Anglican leaders from around the Pacific Rim who are embedded in indigenous ways of knowing and who use this worldview to advance Te Oranga Ake – flourishing for all peoples.

AILI works to build a collective vision for intergenerational, inclusive, indigenous-grounded Anglican leadership that will proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. This vision gives rise to globally equipped but locally grounded leaders who are transformational in their local contexts and positively impacting the Global Church.
