Our Origin Story
GMCC (founded as Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches) was founded in 1905 as a faith-based initiative to serve the community. For 115 years, we have fulfilled our mission of "uniting people of faith, serving people in need," through a range of initiatives that have included advocacy and education around equity and poverty; volunteerism and service learning; mentoring and youth development; support services for seniors; hunger-relief; and bringing people together to strengthen families and communities.
Today, GMCC embraces our origin story through an intercultural approach that intentionally welcomes all belief communities in our work.
GMCC is an entrepreneurial organization that partners with communities most impacted by current challenges, providing an opportunity to co-design and craft responses with local stakeholders. We bring forth an equitable structure for collaboration and power-sharing. We work with communities and in spaces where we can add value, in particular in the areas of food, youth, and well-being.
