Trusting in God’s promises … everything can change!

Serving God’s mission through the church since 1968

November 1, 2016

The Center will soon celebrate 50 years in service of the church.  We are grateful!  The opportunity and challenge for today’s church is to be open to the power and promise of God’s vision for the future.  The Center’s support for church renewal is helping to inspire hopes and give back to churches the capacity for dreaming what the power of God’s promises can do.

We ask your support for this ministry and proudly share some of the fruits of what past support has accomplished.

Contributions to the Center have had a growing impact:

  • Center support for congregations last year encompassed a wide geography. Here is just a sample of where our work is having an impact: Renton WA, Duluth MN, Chippewa Falls WI, San Diego CA, Tucson AZ, La Porte TX, Santa Fe NM, Peru IL, Dyer IN, Kailua HI, Oklahoma City OK, Danville KY, Cleveland Heights, OH.
  • A great variety of contexts make this work unique in each setting: Rural and small town; urban; suburban; contexts growing in racial diversity, university town. Every context is facing unique transitions.
  • In this year alone, Center support responded to church leaders and faith communities across a range of Christian traditions: Disciples of Christ; Roman Catholic; United Church of Christ; Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; United Methodist Church; Presbyterian Church (USA); and Reformed Church in America

All this is to say that the Center’s ministry is reaching out and across wide differences in faith communities, all seeking to respond to God’s call in a changing world.  There is no generic Center support in today’s richly diverse contexts! Across a spectrum of church settings, traditions, and challenges, the Center is making a difference.

I would like to designate my gift to continue the Center’s transformation in 2017.

I would like to enable more churches to experience renewal with my gift.
