Office of Church Engagement

Mission Statement

The Office of Church Engagement (OCE) partners with churches and other Christian ministries as they discern how to be the church and do ministry in the western region of the United States and around the world. Church engagement functions as a resource for vision-casting, planning and developing new forms of ministry capable of effectively engaging our rapidly changing culture.
