BLESS: Annual Appeal

The Annual Appeal: Evangelism

The BLESS Annual Appeal supports the people and programs that boldly proclaim the loving, liberating, and life-giving message of Jesus Christ through Evangelism.

Gifts to the BLESS Annual Appeal ensure that The Episcopal Church has the resources to communicate broadly the message and practices of the Way of Love. From revivals to social media, videos, and downloadable resources for individuals and congregations, The Episcopal Church uses gifts to the Annual Appeal to support this multi-platform ministry.

Loving – Go As Jesus went to the highways and byways, he sends us beyond our circles and comfort, to witness to the love, justice, and truth of God with our lips and with our lives.
Liberating – Turn With God’s help, we can turn toward the way of truth, love, hope, justice, and freedom.
Life-Giving – Pray Jesus teaches us to come before God with humble hearts, boldly offering our thanksgivings and concerns to God or simply listening for God’s voice in our lives and in the world.
