A New Perspective of Innovative Ministry
- working with the Office of Congregational Vitality to support parishes doing new ministries
- collaborating with groups or individuals who have new and innovative ideas for ministry

If you, or your parish, are IMAGINING a new thing, let us imagine with you.
