The Next Six Years

Hear what our Bishop Leila Ortiz has to share about what the next six years in the Synod will look like, and the new mission statement, and reflect on how you might be called to serve your community.



As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in  faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
