With the blessing of His Eminence, Archbishop +Michael, the Commission on Mission and Evangelism has been tasked with the following three charges, a three-prong strategy for diocesan growth and health:

 

1. MISSIONS

The Diocese will pursue a more focused and aggressive approach to mission planting that will directly involve qualifying newly planted missions for OCA Church Planting Grant [CPG] status within the first two to three years of the mission's founding. Also, no future mission would be established without immediate and adequate diocesan financial support for its assigned clergy.

2. PARISH REVITALIZATION

The Diocese will create and aggressively offer adequate resources for those parishes that find themselves in numerical decline. This new ministry of parish health and revitalization will feature both short-term seminars/workshops and long-term solutions and approaches to clergy and laity concerned about the decline of their parish.

3. EVANGELISM
