Yes, every congregation is an asset in the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement! If you wander into a new place, the Episcopal Church there is likely to be a place where you will be welcomed, where the liturgy will be familiar, where there will be concern for social justice issues, and where there will be people serving others in the community. But this is often a well-kept secret.
Our call to share the good news of Jesus tells us that evangelism is an imperative, not a bad word. Now there is a new tool developing to help us tell our stories, the Episcopal Asset Map. The Episcopal Asset Map is a joint project of The Episcopal Church and Episcopal Relief & Development and it is intended to be a searchable platform that will help us to tell our stories and share our gifts with each other. (https://episcopalassetmap.org/about-map )
This online platform shows the locations and ministries of Episcopal churches, schools and institutions. Pins appear on the map and search functions allow users to explore their local area or the entire country. Here, Episcopalians can tell the full story of how they are a part of the Jesus Movement. Clicking on a pin (or a link from the list view) provides contact information and descriptions of programs. But this project is different from many other mapping platforms because it is completely grassroots-populated with oversight by appointed Diocesan Map Administrators. This means that the accuracy of information is up to you! This project can only be successful if you participate and join in sharing the story of The Church.
Each congregation is already on the map and the link is there just waiting for your congregation to get together and fill in your story. In addition to your contact information you can add pictures and videos. You can link to outside sources such as newspaper articles about your congregation. Right now, most of these asset links are empty of all but the title and location. They are waiting to be filled with the life-giving stories of your congregation.
