Ecumenical Shared Ministries

Ecumenical shared ministries are people worshipping and serving God in a unified way while still maintaining their denominational identity and connections.

It is any combination of denomination sharing a program, ministry or building and can take many forms. Because of the different theological, legal and statistical requirements of each denomination, the process of entering a shared ministry is not always as simple as it may seem.

Search the Directory

The purpose of the Ecumenical Shared Ministries directory is to provide those who are in shared ministries connection and resources to those who are in similar ministries across the country. The ESM directory can be sorted into denominational and provincial categories to help those searching to find similar types for sharing arrangements in their region.
