The Brotherhood of Saint Andrew is an international men’s ministry to men and boys in the Anglican/Episcopal Church. The Brotherhood was founded in 1883, and was incorporated in 1908 by an Act of Congress, signed by President Theodore Roosevelt. The Boy Scouts of America, and the Brotherhood are the only two organizations incorporated by an act of Congress. The incorporation of the Brotherhood reads: “The sole purpose of the Brotherhood is the spread of Christ’s Kingdom”. The mission of the Brotherhood is to bring men and boys into the deepest possible relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ by following the rules of prayer, study, and service.

The Dallas Assembly
Each chapter meets once or twice a month in their respective churches to carry out the ministry of the Brotherhood by following the rules of prayer, study, and service. The Chapters are led by a Chapter Director, Vice Director, Secretary, and Treasurer who are elected for one year terms. The length of the meetings vary from 1 to 2 hours.
Each year, all of the brothers in the Diocese meet for an annual meeting of the Dallas Assembly, as close as possible to Saint Andrew’s Day, November 30, for fellowship, worship, and talks by Brotherhood leaders aimed at helping the Brotherhood grow in numbers and effectiveness.
