About The Map

The Episcopal Asset Map offers a window into our denomination and an opportunity to share God’s love, connect across differences, offer support, and help people find a safe space to connect with the divine. 

The beauty of the Asset Map is that anyone can add and update information; it is our collective responsibility to spread the word about how, in our diverse and varying circumstances, we are Christ’s hands and feet in the world.

The Asset Map is a joint project of The Episcopal Church and Episcopal Relief & Development. Even if you aren’t an Episcopalian, you are still welcome to learn more and share in the story of the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement.

What we mean by assets.

Elisha said to her, "What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?" She answered, "Your servant has nothing in the house, except a jar of oil." 2 Kings 4:2

As people of faith, we believe God has given us the gifts and resources to live and respond to difficulties as they arise. Recognizing and using these gifts and resources, or assets, God has provided us is a first step in building the world that God dreams for each of us.

The Episcopal Asset Map is more than a website; it's an opportunity to take stock of our gifts, to share with others what we "have in the house," even if it is only "a jar of oil." With God's help, we can use those simple gifts to create a loving, liberating, and life-giving world that reflects the love of Christ.

Sharing the story of the Episcopal Church takes all of us.

By contributing your faith stories, worship styles, ministries, and more, you both widen the network of ministry experts in the Church and empower others to discern where the Spirit is calling.

No special authority is needed to tell the story of how your community is living Christ in the world. We’re able to learn from and celebrate the good works of our congregations because someone like you gave the gift of their time and shared with us how God is at work in their Episcopal place. 

How to Submit a Story

  1. Search for your Episcopal place and visit their page using the “More Details” button.
  2. Use the “Share a Story” link and choose between sharing a news article or video.
  3. Fill out the form and hit “Save and Submit.

Once you’ve submitted your contribution, a diocesan map administrator (DMA) will review and approve the changes before they go public.

Why it Matters

“I’m a dad preparing my son for his bar mitzvah. We are looking for a place where he can volunteer.”

“I’m an ex-Catholic, divorced lesbian who has found love again. We are trying to find a place where we can be married.”

“I’m a single mother who has fallen behind on bills, will your diaper closet be open this week? We could really use the support”

“What time is church tomorrow, and do you have a service in ASL?”

These quotes represent real people who have found their way to the Asset Map, seeking to give, learn, connect, and be healed. 

More than a website, the Asset Map offers a window into our denomination. Another opportunity for us to share God’s love, connect across differences, provide a healing balm, offer a bit of support and help people find a safe space to connect with the divine.

We pray that your journey through the site will be a blessing.
