The Mission and Vision of the Diocese of Oregon

The Mission and Vision of the Diocese of Oregon

Diocesan Vision Statement

Gathered in the love of God in Christ and accepting of diversity, the Diocese of Oregon actively nourishes renewal and growth, cares for creation, and values the unique gifts of all as we encourage innovation to meet the needs of the 21st century church. We ground our lives in Anglican worship while connecting ourselves to the wider church and world.

Diocesan Mission Plan

Our mission and vision statements speak broadly and compellingly about our identity as a community, an identity that is informed by a prayerful reading of Holy Scripture and the Book of Common Prayer. However, that identity only becomes visible to us and others as it is clarified through specific and strategic directions that inform our work together.

Through this work, our relationships deepen and expand, allowing us to include more individuals and to become wiser in our witness to Jesus. Our work will be focused in four strategic directions: congregational life, diocesan mission, leadership development, and Gospel justice.

The four areas are explained below. Descriptions and high-level goals appear below each area. The next level – specific actions that support these goal areas – have also been identified so that they in turn may be adopted, measured, and accomplished by groups and individuals. The Mission Document that includes these specific actions can be found below.
