A mission hub is a new model for mission in our diocese, a new way of collaboration, a new way of building relationships and transforming communities and congregations.
A hub is a collaboration of three or more Episcopal churches within a particular geographic area committed to implementing a mission outside the walls of their respective church buildings.
Our understanding of mission refers to our baptismal calling to be agents of restoration in the church and in the world. The Mission Hub Initiative, funded through our Together Now campaign, supports this with a vision of collaborative mission and healthy congregations throughout the diocese. The funding is for five years and hubs are encouraged to address sustainability questions early on in the funding cycle.
Mission hubs provide a means for expanding already successful diocesan programs into new places where there is need and opportunity. Depending on local needs, a hub might seek expertise from or choose to partner with programs such as the B-SAFE and B-READY summer and afterschool programs for children and youth, the Life Together young adult intern program, the Leadership Development Initiative, Episcopal City Mission, the Urban Residents program, campus ministries or Bethany House of Prayer.
Visit each of the individual mission hub site pages (see menu upper left) to learn more about the collaborative ministries they are developing and implementing.
