St. Andrew’s outreach efforts are expressed through a host of mission-oriented activities, our response to Jesus’ commandment in the Great Commission to "go and make disciples of all nations ..." (Matthew 28:19). A specific portion of our outreach is guided by the Ministry & Mission Committee organized to identify, support and form partnerships with Christian ministries that propagate the Gospel, both at home and abroad. The Committee reviews different programs and ministries and makes annual funding recommendations to the Vestry.
St. Andrew’s Committee works directly with several local Ministry Partners with whom we have developed close ties in partnering to spread the Gospel. We are also committed to supporting a number of foreign Mission Partners engaged in global, cross-cultural mission to Africa, Mexico, Central America and Asia. Parish leaders have initiated and led missions to our companion dioceses of Northern Malawi and Belize, as well as supported foreign missionaries in the field.
A major goal of the Committee is to encourage members of the parish to become involved personally in these ministries by learning more about and engaging in service with the various ministry and mission partners.

Please contact Frank Bailey, Chairman, to learn more about our Ministry and Mission Partners and the Committee’s work.
