Plan to meet with your DJO or a representative of Jubilee Ministry. During your meeting you will have the opportunity to share your ministry and tell the story of how your work helps to meet basic human needs and build a just society. You may also introduce key members of your staff and/or leadership committee, and ask any questions you may have about Jubilee Ministry.
The DJO or Jubilee Ministry representative will share information about your ministry with the bishop of your diocese, who will determine whether it meets the criteria established by Executive Council and may designate your ministry a Jubilee Ministry. A Certificate of Designation may be issued by the Diocesan Bishop for presentation.
Once designated by your bishop, the Office of Jubilee Ministry will share the story of your ministry with the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church seeking affirmation as a newly-designated Jubilee Ministry. A Certificate of Affirmation will be issued by the Presiding Officers on behalf of the Executive Council for presentation.
