The Rev. Katie Nakamura Rengers


“This is the heart of the Jesus movement. And it will turn the world, and the Church…upside down, which is really right side up.” – The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry Missional Voices began with a simple question: What if God is up to something really big and global but it can only be discovered through the small and local? It was through the exploration of that question that Missional Voices was born…

…a gathering for the sake of reimagining church and transforming neighborhoods.

In 2015, a committed group of seminarians began meeting to discuss a more specific conversation, inviting leaders from around the Episcopal Church to join us for a conference on April 15-16, 2016. As we began inviting diocesan missioners, practitioners, and academics to the first conference, we heard a similar response: “We’ve been dreaming of a chance to get in the same room and talk about this work.”

Missional Voices exists to help turn the Church inside out. We aim to connect church leaders, students, entrepreneurs, artists, community organizers, non-profit leaders, church planters, and everyday innovators in The Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion – anyone pursuing the mission of God in their context.
