more About EVN

Every Voice Network (EVN) is a registered 501c-3 non-profit organization and is sustained by donations from individuals, parishes, dioceses and foundations supplemented by earned income from the sale of products and services like via media.

EVN is a national ministry dedicated to growing the Episcopal Church by embracing the Anglican via media, which discerns God's will and work among us through the dynamic interaction of Scripture, traditions, and reflection upon our own communal experience of reality. Moving beyond a preoccupation with internal church politics and institutional maintenance, EVN seeks to reinvigorate the Church's commitment to serve the world beyond its walls.

Congregations that embrace the gospel ethic of radical hospitality, healing, and justice for all people are on the frontier of the church's mission, capable of reaching out to the growing number of "un-churched" seekers. Our mission is to provide education and generic viagra online evangelism resources to such congregations, creating a network of individuals, congregations, dioceses, and partnering organizations committed to proclaiming the Gospel to a world desperately in need of good news.

Every Voice Network is committed to enhancing the scope and effectiveness of the ministry of the Episcopal Church through cooperative ventures with congregations, dioceses, agencies and advocacy groups. Whether providing web services for Integrity and Claiming the Blessing, Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation and the Episcopal Alliance of Parishes Fighting AIDS in Africa, EVN serves as an incubator and catalyst for creative ministry initiatives.
