Support Our Ministry
Alleluia, Christ is risen! This year, my heart is particularly full of Resurrection joy, because across the Diocese of Indianapolis, I see signs of new life in Christ. By proclaiming our commitment to bold witness and radical welcome in the name of Jesus, we are nurturing seeds of transformation across central and southern Indiana.
To support that growth and vitality, I ask you to join me in making a gift to the Diocese of Indianapolis’s inaugural Bishop’s Appeal. God has blessed us with rich and rewarding work in faith communities across our region, and with your support, we can do more.
By making a contribution to the Bishop’s Appeal, you can make it possible for congregations to think, imagine, and dream boldly about how to expand their missions, reach out to their communities, and participate more fully in diocesan initiatives like the Faithful Innovation Learning Communities, and the soon-to-be-launched College for Congregational Development. All of this is in service to the work we are given to do as beacons of Christ called to help transform our world by feeding the hungry, growing youth participation in camp and other ministries, and supporting mission where it might not otherwise be possible.
This Eastertide, I hope that you will join me in making a gift that will allow us to discover even more fully what life in the light of the Resurrection can mean for the Episcopal Church across our region. Thank you for your generosity and your commitment to our shared vision.
The Lord is risen, indeed. Alleluia!

Contributions to specific diocesan ministries are also welcome. The Episcopal Fund for Human Need (EFHD), Global Mission in Haiti and Brasilia, the Ministerial Excellence Fund*, Campus Ministries, and Waycross Camp & Conference Center receive support from both the Bishop’s Appeal and designated gifts.
* Your tax deductible gift to the Ministerial Excellence Fund will assist our clergy and seminarians so that they don’t face financial crisis alone. It ensures that our clergy’s time, energy and talent are more readily focused on building and sustaining vital congregations that serve families, neighborhoods, communities and the world.
The Ministerial Excellence Fund has been established with a generous gift from Lilly Endowment Inc. The Diocese of Indianapolis has been challenged by Lilly Endowment to match each dollar of their $250,000 gift.
