"The Heartbeat of the Church is Mission." — the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church
The Mission Personnel Office offers members of The Episcopal Church a chance to enter into relationships with people outside national and cultural borders and to nurture worldwide partnerships. Individuals who feel called to serve God across cultural boundaries have the opportunity to serve as Episcopal missionaries in over 25 countries around the Anglican Communion, supporting local church communities in their calling to participate in God’s mission. Missionaries are doctors, nurses, teachers, accountants, agriculturalists, computer technicians, administrators, theologians, and communicators. Missionaries are lay and ordained, young and old.
