Collaborations & Partnerships
“Many hands make light work” is a well-known saying. The truth of it and the power of this priority has already been proven many times over in our diocese. We have many successful collaborations in place already: Galilee Ministries of East Charlotte started as a hub for refugee services and has evolved into a partnership of churches in the Charlotte convocation and a multicultural community of friends. Christ’s Beloved Community, the fully partnered church plant between the Diocese of North Carolina and the NC Synod of ELCA, began as two-by-two knocking on neighbors’ doors and has now blossomed into a beautiful missional community. The Diocese recently announced a new partnership and the Rabbi Raachel Jurovics as the diocesan rabbi-in-residence, a role created out of the Diocese’s deep commitment to interfaith conversation and born of an ongoing interest in learning from one another as we explore the historic connection and contemporary expressions of the relationship between Judaism and Christianity.
These are but a few examples of the collaborative work happening within our diocesan borders. A great many others are in the exploration and planning stages with more to come, and we always welcome new ideas. All will be based in relationships, work to engage both secular and worshiping communities and focus on diversity in its leadership.
