The Rural and Migrant Ministry


The Rural and Migrant Ministry (RMM) is an integral part of the mission of the Diocese of New York.  RMM was created in 1981 in a unique covenant with four other Protestant denominations. RMM was approved at the Diocesan Convention that year to be a ministry of empowerment and advocacy within the rural areas of the Diocese.

Today, RMM is a multi-faith, state wide organization that works for the creation of a just, rural New York State through the following:  nurturing leadership, standing with the farmworkers and rural laborers, and changing unjust systems and structures.

Regeneration supports this Ministry by donating each Christmas to an RMM fund located here in the northeastern part of the Diocese. Toys and gifts are purchased and sold in the RMM store at reduced prices to enable families to buy Christmas gifts for each other.

Regeneration donates to the RMM camp scholarship that sends children of migrant and rural workers to summer camp.
