The Pacific Basin Conference was held June 19-25, 1983 at Hawaii Loa College and hosted by the Bishop of Hawaii, Edmond Browning. Conceived by the Bishop of Nevada, Wesley Frensdorff, its purpose was to discuss Roland Allen’s teachings on missionary work and expansion and “possible future application of his views in the... missionary expansion of the church” (ENS). Bishops Browning and Frensdorff worked together to chair the conference that was attended by over 150 participants and delegates from 51 dioceses of the Anglican Communion around the Pacific Basin.
