The Office of Missions encourages and oversees mission work of all kinds in the Diocese of Ohio: collaborative, local and foreign. Our role is primarily support and coordination. The commissions, committees and programs we support are serving as “ambassadors of Christ”, bringing reconciliation, hope and education via financial grants; via relationships with agencies, programs and initiatives; and via the transformation that happens when we engage with Christ in the stranger’s guise.
The Commission on Global and Domestic Mission directs our efforts in our companion Dioceses of Tanga, Tanzania and Belize, and works with congregations to sponsor mission trips around the country and the world. Episcopal Community Services serves as a resource for grants and information for parishes doing mission work in their neighborhoods. The Commission on Racial Understanding works for healing and transformation, with a particular commitment to anti-racism training. Our office also works with those interested in ministry to refugees, disaster response, and developing a parish or neighborhood mission strategy.
