Mission and Ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis

We recognize that each member has unique gifts and talents, which we nurture for the ministry of service through education, Christian formation, and our worship in the Anglican tradition. We affirm that all our abilities come to us as gifts from God, and that our call is to be faithful stewards of them, both in the Church and in the world. We understand that when we serve others intentionally and faithfully in the world we are also serving the Christ among us. We invite you to join us in discovering "life as ministry."

Christian Formation is the continual process that gives purpose and meaning to our lives as followers of Christ.

Lay Ministries

Each parish member and each congregation has gifts and resources that can make the world more loving and more just. Need help to discern your own or your congregation's unique mission, or to gather the people and the tools to do God's work, or to develop partnerships in your community, or information on how to minister to others as a lay person? Here are resources that can help.
