A category of records of the Church's international mission activity (exclusive of Province 9 and the ECIE, which are formal missionary areas), including coordination of missionaries or mission personnel. The programs involve sponsored mission exchanges and records of coordinating staff, volunteers, and networks. The class category describes the monitoring of world and Anglican mission relationships and records produced by offices with geographical (i.e.,jurisdictional) responsibility, ministry, or authority (e.g. representatives or delegates for Africa, Latin America, the Anglican Communion, United Nations, etc.).

Includes records of directors and staff of offices that address the needs and development of under represented constituencies within The Episcopal Church (e.g., Black Ministries, Hispanic Ministries, and Indigenous Ministries); also includes ministries to young people. See also Social Justice and Public Advocacy for related records.

Social Justice and Public Advocacy

Records of DFMS's ministries involved broadly in Christian social relations and public policy advocacy, specifically in the areas of domestic affairs relating to poverty work, protection of women and children, health care, those with physical disabilities, the aged, the incarcerated, and similar groups typically affected by economic and social inequities.

Communications and Promotions

Non-serial records in print or other media have been generated by a number of program support units with the aim of distributing news, information, and promotional or messaging content, mostly in support of its evangelism and missionary work, but to connect leaders an membership with newsworthy stories. It includes operational records and pictorial representations, motion pictures, transparency slides, audio and video recordings, and after 1995 website records, e-records, digital publications, and digital video recordings.
