ECF Vital Practices

ECF Vital Practices is a vibrant web-based resource for Episcopal leaders that includes Vestry Papers articles, blogs for sharing ideas and experiences, stories about congregational issues, and practical tools and resources on every ministry topic you can imagine.

ECF Vital Practices is a ministry of ECF whose mission is to be a comprehensive and holistic resource that helps vitalize Episcopal faith communities. Vital Practices offers vestry members and other people of faith, resources and tools to respond to the changing needs of the Church. Building upon the spiritually grounded, practical Vestry Papers articles that have inspired and informed vestry members since 1995, Vital Practices uses the Internet to both expand its offering and its audience.

Vital Practices explores new ways of supporting congregations by building online communities of Episcopalians who share their stories, experiences, and best practices, who learn from one another, and who discover support to help sustain their leadership and their ministries. It includes articles by experts and peers, blogs for sharing ideas about faith and leadership, stories about real life lessons of change and leadership, tools for stewardship, communications, and opportunities for you to share your stories and examples.
