Core Values of CSJ Sponsored Ministries

Sponsored Ministries are vibrant expressions of the CSJ mission of unity.  Always moving toward excellence, we serve the dear neighbor in the manner of Jesus, manifesting God’s active, inclusive, unifying love, through hospitality, generosity, service and zeal.

Rooted in this common mission, therefore, we:
Exercise our personal and collective leadership to bring about a more just and peaceful world.
Collaborate with others to change societal systems that cause injustice, oppression, and poverty.
Take steps to strengthen, heal, and renew Earth.
Work toward transforming the culture of power, privilege and violence, to a culture that is inclusive, embraces diversity and welcomes the gifts of all.
