Your contribution allows us to reach more people by demonstrating love in the midst of division; joy to those experiencing sorrow; kindness to those facing lack; and leadership excellence to advance the quality of justice in our land. 

2021 was a year of seeking unity and solidarity across lines that historically divide God's people in obedience to the compelling call to be peacemakers. Despite the chaos and division in our nation, we engaged in an exciting journey of building bridges with new partners. 

With the Asian Pacific community, we created a 3-minute "Stand Together" video and a Black/Asian Solidarity Resolution. We partnered with the Latino/a community to protect the sacred freedom to vote even as we prayed together for our fragile democracy. With our White American faith partners we protected the "least of these" by ensuring that the federal budget meets basic human needs.

By God's grace, we completed a robust leadership excellence program for Generation X and millennial leaders through the 2021 Masters Series for Distinguished Leaders (MSDL) program despite the pandemic. The Masters Series for Distinguished Clergy (MSDC) program equipped nearly 20 pastors from across the nation to voice their moral convictions before decision-makers, and focus on clergy self-care.

Please know that our ministry success was only possible this year through the prayers and financial contributions of generous supporters like you. For a year-end gift of $50.00 or more, we will send you a beautiful gift journal. We pray God's boundless blessings and unlimited favor on your life and family, now and in the New Year!

Be blessed, be encouraged, and stay safe!
