The Office of Global Partnerships serves as a bridge for developing and nurturing relationships between the Episcopal Church and our partners around the Anglican Communion, our ecumenical and interreligious partners, and with organizations such as the United Nations and the National Council of Churches. We are a resource for congregations and dioceses as they develop and foster their own relationships around the world. We actively develop resources to strengthen and facilitate the global mission engagement of the Episcopal Church. We highlight issues of international concern and, in cooperation with colleagues across the Mission Department, mobilize engagement in these issues throughout the Episcopal Church. Our ministry is guided by the mission priorities adopted by General Convention, which include the Five Marks of Mission and the Millennium Development Goals.
