The Purpose of World Mission: 

The World Mission Department seeks to engage every member and every church of the diocese in the work of evangelism and mission. We are working to be faithful to the Great Commission, Jesus Christ's command to "go therefore and make disciples of all the nations" (Matthew 28:19) and His Great Commandment "to love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:39)
