Conforming to the world has never been God’s call on the faith community in Minnesota (Romans 12:2). At the Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) you have worked constantly for transformation of this world and transformation in how faith communities express unity built on justice.

Faced with a global pandemic, a racial reckoning, the end of a war in Afghanistan and the beginning of a war in Ukraine, we continue to hear the call to transform the way we work to better fulfill our mission.

As you see on our project pages, more and more refugee clients were served and empowered in new ways through MCC Refugee Services.

Truth telling events are occurring in the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota as we step into a ten year focus on a racial justice initiative of truth telling, education, and reparations in Minnesota.

Interfaith bridge building was embraced through Taking Heart Iftars at mosques during Ramadan and focused justice conversations with rabbis, imams, and other religious leaders.

Churches and community organizations strengthened empathy and peace in Minnesota through Respectful Conversations and our Peacemakers national partnerships.

We are transformed not by this world but according to what we hear as God’s continued call on us to build unity through justice. Your ongoing support will continue this God-inspired work.

Rev. Dr. Curtiss Paul DeYoung CEO, Minnesota Council of Churches
