Vision of  Invite Welcome Connect

The vision of Invite Welcome Connect is to change the culture of The Episcopal Church to move from maintenance to mission.

Core Values 

Core Values undergird this ministry, and participating congregations and those carrying out this work are reminded to keep these values at the forefront of ministry.

Prayerful

We pray that God will give us the hearts to reflect God’s gracious invitation and welcome. It is not our table to which we welcome people – it is God’s table! 

 

Intentional

We must intentionally nurture a commitment to this ministry, and we do this by organizing the work in a systematic, creative way. 


 

Relational 

Relational ministry is critical to this work. 


 

Accountable

We are accountable to God, the Gospel and to each other.
