The Episcopal Diocese of New York, in collaboration with The General Theological Seminary, launched Episcopal Futures to support 15 congregations of diverse contexts within the diocese that have discerned a call to missional transformation. The project seeks to collaboratively build an Episcopal culture of adaptive leadership, catalyze renewal of congregations, and plant new, imaginative worshiping communities and outreach ministries. The diocesan commitments to participants are to foster collaborative culture, faithful renewal, and radical reconciliation. The diocese employs inter-congregational, three-year learning communities that are equipped with seed funding to launch new ministries as well as simultaneous research and evaluation. Ultimately, the diocese seeks to design, implement, and sustain Episcopal Futures as an initiative that will be a step towards a holistic, energized, and Spirit-led ecosystem for all Episcopalians and their neighbors in the Diocese of New York.
