    Ministry & Counsel fosters the spiritual growth and strengthens the religious life of Friends in New England by:

    • nurturing local meetings and individuals
    • promoting intervisitation and communication among meetings
    • supporting Friends traveling in the ministry and others in public ministry
    • overseeing meetings for worship and nurturing worship at Annual Sessions
    • receiving State of Society reports from local and quarterly meetings and crafting a yearly meeting State of Society report
    • caring and praying for the spiritual condition of Friends in New England.
