An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church


” These “desks,” sometimes called “ethnic desks,” refer to the staff at the Episcopal Church Center in New York who have networks, or commissions and committees, whom they represent at Episcopal or ecumenical meetings. These “desks” may also provide program services if funded in the general church program budget. These have included American Indian/Alaska Native Ministries, Asiamerican Ministries, Black Ministries, and Hispanic Ministries.
