About Us

OUR MISSION/VISION

Living for and with our most vulnerable neighbors.

Through living for and with our most vulnerable neighbors we foster intentional and diverse Christian communities where everyone is welcome, belongs and discovers their gifts of service. We do this by sharing life together, being present in the midst of both suffering and joy, and actively working toward freedom and interdependence. This is the ministry of reconciliation as community development and it is the heart of who we are.

Through our Center for Practical Theology we provide opportunities to theologically reflect on and practically engage with practices and policies that directly relate to and impact life in community with our most vulnerable neighbors. The Center's programs include mission team workshops, internships/apprenticeships, training events, speaking engagements, and an intensive Reconcilation and Justice Academy. The Center also hosts a blog documenting and educating about life in community with the vulnerable.

Through the Community Sustainability Project we help create opportunities and institutions that develop, strengthen, express and sustain the individual, neighborhood and community.

Church on the Street is also a founding member of TraffickLight, an international task force created to bring together partner organizations to colaborate in the fight against human trafficking.
