The Rt. Rev. Dr. Douglas E. Sparks was consecrated as the eighth bishop of the diocese on Saturday, June 25th in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Welcome, Bishop Doug!
The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Jesus Christ. Mission is about evangelism – and it’s about caring for the poor. Mission is about our eternal destiny – and about participating in God’s vision for a just and peaceful world.
Evangelism is the presentation of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, in such ways that persons may be led to believe in him as Savior, and follow him as Lord, in the fellowship of his church.
The Diocese of Northern Indiana offers three summer camps: one for children in grades 3 through 9, one for senior high students, and an ecumenical camp for children with incarcerated parents. Our summer camp programs are the diocese's "most important investment" in the work we are to do—"to pass on the Christian faith to the next generation of believers."
