The Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida has committed to a mission initiative to encourage and support the development of fresh forms of Christian community. The mission is to seek out, support, and encourage such communities emerging from within their local, cultural context and at the same time, richly flavored with an Episcopal Church heritage.
“This is an ongoing discussion, exploration, and experimentation in which, we partner with God to discover how the Spirit is leading us into a “mixed economy,” a both/and, a richness of what was, what is, and what is yet to come in the Body of Christ. Together, we are exploring, listening, adventuring, risk-taking, gathering, praying, being, and missioning to be Good News in the communities in which we are planted.” Fr. Eric email
