Brotherhood of Saint Andrew
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew has been bringing men and youth to Jesus Christ since its founding Nov. 30, 1883 at St. James Episcopal Church in downtown Chicago. Homeless men were sleeping on the city’s downtown streets – and it was these men the fledgling Brotherhood wanted to save.
Today, the Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a worldwide ministry with chapters in Africa, Japan, the Philippines, Great Britain, Canada, Haiti and the United States where we have 4,192 members in 362 U.S. chapters.
Mission: To bring men and youth to Christ.
The Brotherhood endeavors to accomplish this mission through the threefold disciplines of Prayer, Study and Service.
Discipline of Prayer. 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.
Discipline of Study. 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.
Discipline of Service. To make continuous efforts, week by week, to bring others nearer to Christ through his Church.
