Missionary 

One sent to proclaim the good news of Christ. The term is from the Latin "to send." All Christians by baptism are called to "proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ" (BCP, p. 305). The church seeks to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. The church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members (BCP, p. 855). The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church includes all members of the Episcopal Church.
