Who We Are

The Episcopal Church in Minnesota is one faith community in 104 places, bound together by our commitment to follow the Way of Jesus, joining God in God’s project to heal the whole world with love.

Our congregations are rural and urban, young and old, large and small. We speak Ojibwe, English, Dakota, Spanish, Karen, and Hmong. We worship and work together on the ancestral and contemporary lands of the Anishinaabe and Dakota peoples. You can learn more here about our history and the role Indigenous people have played in ECMN since its founding.

Four Priorities

At ECMN convention in September of 2020, Bishop Loya introduced four priorities that will shape our life together.

"The question before us is clear: will we, will each one of us, join what the Spirit is doing among and around us?"

Discipleship

Daily practices that help us follow Jesus as our whole way of life.

Faithful Innovation

Joining the Spirit in new ways to proclaim and live out the gospel. 

Justice

Becoming the Beloved Community.

Congregational Vitality

Thriving faith communities of all sizes in all places.
