Mission Area Map and Information

The congregations in the Diocese of Ohio are organized into eight (8) Mission Areas.  The purpose of the Mission Areas is to assist in communication, to share programs and resources, to provide mutual support among congregations, and to identify and implement opportunities for collaborative ministry.

Mission areas

Each Mission Area operates with a Mission Area Council comprised of all active parochial clergy and two laypersons from each parish.  Additionally, the Bishop appoints a Dean who serves as a liaison between the bishop and the Mission Area Council.  The Mission Area Episcopal Church Women President also serves on the Mission Area Council as an ex-officio member.

Meeting at least quarterly, the Mission Area Council provides leadership by nurturing fellowship and collaboration among the parishes.

The Mission Area Council also participates in the larger body of the church by electing a representative to serve on Diocesan Council.

Each Mission Area Council has access to an annual allotment from the Diocesan Operating Budget for its unrestricted use including administrative, event underwriting, educational, and service.

Each Mission Area is also allocated an annual allotment from the Mission Office section of the Budget that may be used only for outreach/service projects (domestic or international).

Detailed information on Mission Areas can be found in the Constitution and Canons of The Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Ohio.
