On this Maundy Thursday, I joined with The Anglican Union for the Propagation of the Gospel clergy (where I am an Associate Member and serve as the Chairman of the Raising Up New Leaders and Oratories working group) from the United States, Cayman Islands, India, Brazil and Africa, crossing 7 time zones via Zoom for the renewal of Ordination Vows and the Oratorians’ Rule of Life.
Jack Lumanog is president-elect of the Cornell College Alumni Association Board of Directors and the first person of color named to this position since its establishment in 1873.
In April 2019, Jack was ordained a bishop in the Anglican Diocese of St. Ignatius Loyola. The diocese, headquartered in Atlanta, seeks “to raise up multicultural churches that are firmly rooted in the Anglican tradition and fully alive to the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Previously Jack was chief operating officer of the Anglican Church in North America, responsible for overseeing 1,050 congregations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. He also served as corporate secretary and trustee of the Anglican Relief and Development Fund-US, the giving arm of the Anglican Church. The Diocese of St. Ignatius Loyola is part of Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches and is unrelated to the Anglican Church in North America.
Jack is a lieutenant colonel and volunteer chaplain in U.S. Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol. He has had a number of leadership roles here, including serving as special assistant to the national chief of chaplains. He was honored on separate occasions as chaplain of the year by the Kansas and Great Lakes regions of the organization.
He is a lifelong martial artist with a 4th degree master black belt and has won several titles in competitions sponsored by the North American Sport Karate Association.
He holds a master of divinity degree from St. Paul Theological Seminary and a doctorate in counseling and administration from Andersonville Theological Seminary.
A native of Hoboken, N.J., Jack majored in religion at Cornell, with minors in theater and communications, music, psychology, and education. He worked on KRNL and was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. “My religion degree shaped me into the theologian I am today,” Jack wrote. “Ebersole Student Health Clinic saved my life as I struggled with depression. The treatment I received there established a pattern of metal wellness I carry to this day.”

Bishop Chuck entered into his eternal reward this morning. I was blessed to be under his leadership in The Anglican Mission for a time before going on to Pittsburgh with his blessing to serve the Anglican Church in North America in my current role as Canon to the Archbishop and Chief Operating Officer.
Bishop Murphy spoke clearly and often about the importance of the leader’s vision, taking risks for the Gospel and having a bias toward action in an Anglican apostolic movement.
I have fond memories of many a Winter Conference in a hotel ballroom in Birmingham, Jacksonville or Greensboro (a bunch of times!) where he would either say “money is muscle” in his Chairman’s Address or remind the clergy of following the Lord’s leading like “the pillar of smoke by day and the pillar of fire by night” as Moses did.
Bishop Murphy spoke powerfully into my life over many annual presbyters retreats at All Saints Church in Pawleys Island, SC or praying over me at the Power Ministry Service at the annual Winter Conference.
Along with another significant ministry mentor in my life, Archbishop Randy Adler, Bishop Murphy gave me a renewed vision for the three streams of historic Christianity: sacramental, evangelical and charismatic. Three streams flowing into one mighty river.
+Chuck taught powerfully on leadership, stewardship, church planting and worship – “worship is God’s presence, God’s purposes, God’s pardon and God’s power.”
