Office for Ministry Development
The Episcopal Church


The Episcopal Church Office for Ministry Development supports the development of the ministry of all the baptized as well as efforts to increase the capacity of the Church to exercise its mission and ministry.

We work closely with the Standing Commission on Ministry Development and other program groups within the Episcopal Church Center and all across the Church. Some of these groups include

and a whole host of ministry development efforts underway throughout the Church. We also work with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and its Division for Ministry and with other denominational initiatives. We welcome other creative partnerships and conversations with individuals and groups who are interested and working in the area of ministry development.

Our Website seeks to reflect this depth of involvement in ministry development and we welcome your suggestions and feedback about this crucial aspect of our Church’s life. If you wish to reach us by telephone please call the Episcopal Church Center:
