Partnership Office for the Middle East

As this office develops and nurtures relationships with Anglican, ecumenical, and interreligious partners in the Middle East, it also collaborates with The Episcopal Church's Mission Personnel Office to develop new missionary placements and opportunities in the Middle East, to support missionary discernment and training, and to ensure on-site pastoral support for missionaries in the field. The Partnership Office for the Middle East represents the Episcopal Church to relevant Middle East-related and issue-based UN and ecumenical working groups, and works with organizations such as the Anglican Alliance and Episcopal Relief & Development.


Our Office of Justice and Advocacy Ministries, based in Washington, is closely monitoring the political and humanitarian dynamics in Iraq. Episcopalians may join the Episcopal Public Policy Network at for updates around particular advocacy actions.
