Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM)

We live reliant upon a fabric woven of mutual interdependencies

God calls us to the work of strengthening the interconnected threads.

As the United Church of Christ, we know that it is together that we learn, grow, and love. Relying on God and with a spirit of mutuality, the Connecticut Conference of the United Church of Christ strives to build faithful leaders and vital communities of churches in Connecticut, each and all proclaiming a radical welcome that embraces all of God’s children.

Our mission is, quite simply, to strengthen churches by empowering faith leaders to have creative and effective ministries. We help local congregations realize their missional identity and become justice-seeking, peacemaking communities of compassion. The Conference’s central focus is on leadership development and congregational vitality, while the scope of our vision and impact is much wider.

Your gift will be divided equally between the Connecticut Conference and the national setting of the United Church of Christ (Learn more). Below is a video that details how those gifts are distributed and used to create an impact in Connecticut.
