We 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.
Missional Voices is a network of leaders — laity, clergy, youth leaders, educators, seminarians, and creatives — across The Episcopal Church who believe the church of the future will be more relational, more diverse, more collaborative, more hopeful, and more agile.
We provide hopeful space for robust conversations about the theology, culture, and the practice of ministry, support strong, faithful leadership in a time of adaptive change, and encourage collaboration and creativity across congregations and geographies.
We are fostering a conversation about how to follow Christ in our particular contexts, in this particular day and age. We are a movement seeking to strengthen the relational fabric of The Episcopal Church so that our congregations are strong and healthy enough to be a sustained, effective, faithful, and moral voice that is engaged in the transformation of our communities toward the common good.
We host a national gathering each year, curate online conversation about the practice of ministry, and are available for preaching and teaching in regional and local settings throughout the year. Each of these settings allows us to carry out these reflective conversations on culture and ministry as well as make and deepen connections across the church.
Our aim is to create an annual event connecting participants to a movement that is empowering and equipping God’s people in every congregation to explore and develop new forms of church that can reach the increasing diversity of our society.
