Office of the Patriarch

Archbishop++Darel E. Chase is an dedicated and anointed Man of God. He is the Metropolitan Archbishop and Patriarch of the Archdiocese of the Mid-West. Archbishop++Chase is also the Patriarch of the Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches.

Archbishop++Chase is married to the love of his life, Lady Tia Chase. Lady Tia is an anointed, talented and gifted Woman of God and walks side by side with the Archbishop.

Archbishop++Chase is one of the Founding Prelates of the International College of Bishops, and he is also the President and Establishmentarian Metropolitan Christian University.

Archbishop++Chase was raised in New Jersey and was brought up in the Episcopal Church. He was confirmed at the age of eight, and received all minor orders (Lay Reader, Lay Minister, Eucharistic Minister), and also served as an Acolyte and Sacristan at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. He credits his sense of structure and liturgical training to his childhood Christian upbringing. While in his early twenties and leaving his home, he found himself seeking more in depth knowledge of the Scriptures and a more open worship environment. This is when he became “non-denominational,” and was initially licensed ordained as a Minister of the Gospel.

Returning home to New Jersey, Archbishop++Chase attended the New Shiloh Missionary Full Gospel Church. While there, he was licensed and ordained at the hand of his Father in the Ministry, (the late) Bishop Alfred Blakely, DD. Serving at New Shiloh, Apostle Chase served as Administrator and Liaison Officer. He was active in the Urban Ministry and Evangelism campaign at New Shiloh, through American Baptist Churches USA (NJ).

Heeding the calling of the Lord, Archbishop++Chase was led to unite ministers from various denominational backgrounds, bringing them together under the auspices of the Convergence Movement, which is the uniting of the three streams of Christendom (Evangelical + Charismatic/Pentecostal + Liturgical/Sacramental). It has always been his agenda to put aside denominational and dogmatic philosophy and unite under the banner of Jesus Christ alone. It was at this time, he was initially consecrated to the office of Bishop by Bishop John H. Covington and Bishop Lawerence J. Grayson of the Full Gospel Missionary Church in June of 1999. Since then he has had the privilege and honor of ordaining several men and women to the ministry and, consecrating several Bishops throughout the US and abroad.

Archbishop Chase was consecrated and ordained in valid Apostolic Succession to the Sacred Office and Ministration of Bishop in the Lord's Church, and was installed as the Bishop Ordinary of the Episcopal Diocese of the Mid-West (now the Archdiocese of the Mid-West). In February of 2005, Archbishop++Chase was elevated and Coronated as the Archbishop and Patriarch of the Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches.

Throughout his ministry, Archbishop++Chase has planted several churches and ministries. Remaining true to his calling and ministry that the Lord appointed him to, Archbishop++Chase is now the organizer, developer, and Rector of Metropolitan Cathedral.
