About Us


Living for and with our most vulnerable neighbors.

Through living for and with our most vulnerable neighbors we foster an intentional and diverse Christian community 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.

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 and with our most vulnerable neighbors. The Center's programs include mission teams, internships/fellowships, training events, speaking engagements, and a convention. The Center also hosts a blog documenting and educating about life in community with the vulnerable.

Church on the Street was founded in 1999.
