The Anglican Internet Church was founded in 2010 A.D. as an Internet ministry of the Rev. Dr. Ronald E. Shibley at St. John Chrysostom Anglican Church, Richmond, VA (now closed). It began with live Internet streaming of weekly services, but later evolved, after Fr. Shibley’s retirement from pulpit ministry, into a purely Internet-focused ministry committed to the teaching of traditional Christianity from an Anglican perspective. We place strong emphasis on Christian Spirituality (See Christian Spirituality: An Anglican Perspective (revised 2016 A.D.) at our Virtual Bookstore).

Shibley and his wife for distribution to parishioners, has now grown to twelve unique books offered via the Internet using our Virtual Bookstore at Amazon.com (for more, See the Virtual Bookstore tab).
