Our Mission


Our Key Values


Who We Are




Our Mission


To support the people of the Church in faithful and effective ministry to their communities and 

congregations through a church-wide center for ministry training, information and connection.

Create a church-wide forum for sharing the abundance of ministry expertise across diocesan borders.
Provide practical training and support for outreach and congregational ministry through teleclasses, web-seminars and online resources.
We want our participants to come away from every class with:
a deeper sense of being part of the larger Church
the experience of connection & community with others who share their concerns for ministry
the gratification and pleasure of having learned something new
active and practical things they can do in their life or congregation
a greater confidence to step out in ministry in a new way!


Our call comes from the General Thanksgiving (in The Book of Common Prayer of the Episcopal Church):


       And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies,

       that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise,

       not only with our lips, but in our lives,

       by giving up our selves to your service,

       and by walking before you

       in holiness and righteousness all our days;

       through Jesus Christ our Lord....
