Canon Andrea McMillin: Diocesan Administration

Recognizing the emotional and financial impact of the pandemic on the church, the health and sustainability of our congregations is our main focus, especially:

Worship and Holy Week

Finance and stewardship

Pastoral care of our leaders

Measures taken to support congregations during this time:

Routine meetings with diocesan governance, church finance and Investment Fund officers

Collaboration with clergy and lay leader teams, for a stronger response

Regularized Zoom calls with treasurers to prepare, support, and teach as needed

Pause on program spending as well as the hiring of the Missioner for Evangelism and Discipleship

Deferment of apportionment for qualifying churches

Creation of a Stewardship & Finance Task Force to help ensure long-term success
