New Asset Map Project Will Help Connect Community
January 08, 2015
In 2015, the Diocese of Chicago is delighted to partner with Episcopal Relief & Development to develop an asset map -- a tool to connect people both within the church and from the broader community and to promote the sharing of ideas and information.
As the name suggests, the asset map will be a map of the assets, programs and ministries of the diocese. The map can be filtered or searched to show congregations with specific ministries (e.g. food pantries, peace and justice programs or immigration services), worship language, or other specific programs and characteristics.
The asset map will only be as good as its database, which means that we need the ongoing participation and interest of individuals and congregations to make it happen. In mid-January, congregations will hear from Nathan Davis, our communications and networking intern, about participating in a survey of resources that can be cataloged on the asset map.
