Episcopal Resources at Your Fingertips

The Episcopal Asset Map is a visual catalog that shows, at a glance and in depth, what the Church’s presence looks like in your area, in both infrastructure and programs. It was designed to support the development of new ministries and partnerships, as well as the mobilization of resources and expertise. For example, in times of disaster, users can use the Asset Map to find churches and other locations that might be at risk and nearby ministries or facilities that could be mobilized to help.  

Learn more by watching this short video of  “Sally,”  who wants to start a community garden at her church.  Follow along with Sally as she searches for help using the map, makes a new friend at a nearby congregation, starts her garden and then updates her church’s page with its new ministry.
