Our new Mission Statement:
The Church Council of Greater Seattle builds collective power
through faith-rooted community organizing
for transformational change toward liberation and justice.
Over the past two years, the Church Council has endeavored through staff, board, and community consultation toward a new mission statement that authentically captures the essence of our work.
I recently joined the Church Council after 30 years of corporate retail in which the destructive pursuit of profits left me drained, my soul yearning for “something more”. As a person committed to faith that does justice, I am grateful to offer what I can to our collective work. As the new Development Lead of the Church Council, I am in wonder and admiration of the powerful organizing work that my colleagues engage in every day (just to highlight three of many):
- 150+ immigrants accompanied since 2019
- Advocacy for Downtown Emergency Service Center to build 95 units of supportive housing in Burien
- Nine congregations discerning how to faithfully steward their land
Over the coming months, we will be continuing our journey to shape the values, methodologies, and theory of change for our work. We cannot wait to share more with you during our Annual Assembly in March 2022. I am fired up by the accompanying, convening and facilitating our organizers are doing: mission in action!
Our mission leads us to a new way of being in community by listening to and following the leadership of impacted communities toward transformational change. We invite you to join us on this wondrous journey toward liberation and justice!
Give today and join local communities building collective power toward transformational change.
