New Episcopal Communities

As a ministry of the Office of Church Planting and Redevelopment, New Episcopal Communities welcomes and supports those with an entrepreneurial spirit and a heart for mission development outside the realm of existing churches. A new Episcopal community might be a fresh church plant, a unique worshipping body, or a missional community focused on service, justice, and mercy. These communities are grounded in faith, guided by love, and connected to an Episcopal diocese. They seek innovative ways to invite and unite individuals who seek spiritual or missional community. 

New Episcopal Communities offers grant funding, leadership discernment, training, and coaching resources for those exploring the idea of starting a new venture.
