About Compassion Peace & Justice

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

  • address injustice
  • advocate for peace
  • assist and accompany people and communities impacted by poverty, violence and disasters
  • support work to eradicate racism, white supremacy and oppression of all kinds

Committed to “the whole gospel for the whole person,” our programs follow the concern of Jesus for vulnerable and oppressed communities and seek to honor God’s love for all creation. We respond to General Assembly referrals and equip the church to act compassionately and prophetically in these 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 (synods and presbyteries), congregations and other ecumenical and interfaith partners is crucial to our work.

Compassion, Peace and Justice is made up of 9 ministries:

CPJ work is supported by the Pillars of the Church and these special offerings:
