Our Key Values
Who We Are
support the people of the Church in faithful and effective
ministry to their communities
congregations through a church-wide center for ministry training,
information and connection.
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:
deeper sense of being part of the larger Church
experience of connection & community with others who share their
concerns for ministry
gratification and pleasure of having learned something new
and practical things they can do in their life or congregation
greater confidence to step out in ministry in a new way!
Our call comes from the General Thanksgiving (in
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....
