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.

Present Work

We are a multicultural, interfaith organization that works in collaboration with the communities we serve to build equity and foster wellbeing across Minnesota. Our aim is to simultaneously provide critical relief services while addressing the root causes of inequities that create sustainable solutions. We focus on services in three main areas: food, youth, and wellbeing.
