Diocesan and Parish Records and Collections

  • DP
  • Record group

Primary source records received from parishes or Dioceses by canonical requirement or within the collection policy of the Archives, or deposited by an independent church entity for safekeeping. Records of missionary districts and pre-Executive Council missionary fields and jurisdictions are generally maintained in the Foreign Mission class (MP-02 or MP-04).

Domestic Mission and Program Administration

A category that distinguishes the establishment of foreign mission churches and the missionaries sent by the DFMS, including personnel records generated on individuals engaged in work outside the United States and in Episcopal Church provincial jurisdiction. The records document recruitment, training, and placement of DFMS missionaries or representatives, mission volunteers, and others engaged in evangelism or service work abroad or in technical assistance to others in jurisdictions beyond the United States. The records also frequently contain abundant personal information on individual experiences in foreign service.

DFMS Administrative Operations

This class is used to hold the executive-level records related to the supervision and administration of DFMS operations, especially, but not exclusively, the records of the Chief Operating Officer and functions overseen by that person and staff (e.g. IT/T, property management, human resources). Records may include records relating to the organization of the Mission Program units, internal management policies, staff-wide development projects, and activities.

Bishops Suffragan for Special Ministry Areas

Includes records of bishops suffragan and assisting and their offices, which are authorized to engage in such jurisdictional areas as the Pastoral Care and Oversight of Bishops, Chaplaincy Endorsement and Oversight, the charge of Episcopal Churches in Europe, and similar non-geographical Episcopal authorities and jurisdictions.

Property and Legal Compliance

Records of DFMS real and personal property and similar assets under management, including legal obligations in governmental filings, tax filings, response to civil inquiries, and litigation that may fall to this area of management.
