Mission and Ministry

We are a church that believes God is calling us into the world--together.

The mission and ministry of the Southern Ohio Synod is determined by, funded and carried out by the members of the Southern Ohio Synod. The Bishop's Office team directs and coordinates those efforts on behalf of the synod. 

In this section of the website you will find the Approved Mission and Ministry Plan (AKA M&M Plan) that is approved by our synod assembly and the Adjusted M&M Plan, which is approved by the synod's interim legislative body, Synod Council. You will also read more about our committees and our partners who are vital to carrying out the M&M Plans and helping us be church together.
