Welcome to the Global Episcopal Mission Network!
The Global Episcopal Mission Network (GEMN) is open to all individuals, organizations and dioceses with a heart for mission. GEMN is dedicated to the principle that every Episcopalian is a missionary. We are committed to connecting dioceses, congregations and individuals who are engaged in global mission to:
- Facilitate and strengthen mission programs, relationships, and ministries throughout the world;
- Provide a training curriculum for Global Mission Agents who will support global mission efforts in their diocese, organization or church;
- Sponsor an annual mission conference for education, training and exchange of global mission ideas and initiatives;
- Foster and support mutually responsible and interdependent relationships and accountability among mission-minded individuals, organizations and dioceses within the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.
GEMN convenes an annual meeting of its members during its Global Mission Conference and Educational Institute.
GEMN's Formation Program for Global Mission Agents is a two-year program designed to increase mission awareness and activities throughout the Episcopal Church. In addition to attendance at the Global Mission Conference and Educational Institute, participants meet in a half-day session immediately preceding the Institute, complete required readings and carry out an appropriate fieldwork assignment.
