The mission of the Office of Stewardship is to develop core competencies in steward leaders for transforming communities of faith.
The goal of research and statistics is to provide the church with information about its context, congregations, members, leadership, directions, and ongoing mission. Employing the best research procedures that are available we provide unbiased data and analysis for use by national leaders, dioceses and local congregations. This information is intended to help in the work of the church by helping us understand who we are, the situations where we work, and the progress we are making.
“Vital congregations are faith communities which invite individuals to become passionate followers of Jesus Christ, which offer opportunities for personal and corporate transformation, and which equip people for Gospel mission in the world.”
