“Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in.”—Isaiah 58:12

The Compassion, Peace & Justice (CPJ) ministry engages with Presbyterians and partners across the U.S. and internationally to:

  • End poverty and hunger
  • Restore communities impacted by disaster
  • Promote peace and transform cultures of violence
  • Promote solidarity with people
  • Promote solidarity with Creation

 

Embracing the invitation to be a Matthew 25 church, our ministry area works to eradicate poverty, end systemic racism and bring tangible resources to impacted communities. We ask, “When did we see you, Lord?” as we accompany the imprisoned, oppressed and vulnerable, and seek to honor and protect all Creation.

Responding to the actions of the General Assembly, we support congregational and mid council vitality, equipping the church as it acts compassionately and prophetically in challenging times. We do this through accompaniment, advocacy, grant-making and community-centered development that is guided by global humanitarian standards.

Collaboration with mid-council networks, congregations and other ecumenical and interfaith partners is crucial to our work.

Compassion, Peace & Justice is made up of 8 ministries:

CPJ work is supported by the Pillars of the Church and these Special Offerings:

  • One Great Hour of Sharing
  • Peace and Global Witness
  • Pentecost Offering
