Recognizing the emerging ministry landscape that lies before us, and the ways God is calling us to respond creatively, faithfully, and courageously as disciples of Christ in this diocese, Bishop Sandra has expanded the scope of the Parish Vitality Coordinator’s portfolio. The Rev’d Canon Lisa Vaughn is now the Director of Mission and Ministry Development. Canon Lisa is part of the senior leadership team in our diocese and has taken on increasing responsibility to prepare and equip parishes and leaders for new forms of ministry, including Ecumenical Shared Ministry arrangements and Collaborative Ministry Arrangements. The redevelopment of her position recognizes this and supports our ongoing recognition of the need for transformative change in our ministry structures. The change in title and scope reflects what has already been happening on the ground under Canon Lisa’s leadership and is long overdue. We thank her for her ongoing commitment and dedication and offer our congratulations as she officially takes on this new role.
