Why does the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People do what it does?

We follow the example of Jesus, who made friends with the poor, gave them the dignity every human being deserves, helped them get back on their feet and make a fresh start at a better life — and taught those who follow him to help others exactly the same way. 

"… Community is pretty much what the church is about, … the church is a community of hope that builds on shared gifts, talents and resources and only in that sharing does the whole come into being and people find hope, without community and sharing this may not happen."

– The Rev.Joseph Johnson, National Self-Development of People Committee member
