Seeking Renewalin Our CityGet Involved
Justice & Outreach
Our vision is to be a community following Jesus, seeking renewal in our city. One way we fulfill this vision is by partnering with organizations and missionaries across our city and world in restorative justice and making disciples of Jesus.
Investing Our Time, Talents, & Finances for Renewal
An essential part of seeking renewal in our city is acknowledging that God has been at work here long before we arrived. There are already many organizations in San Francisco doing the Kingdom work of care and advocacy for the poor, marginalized, and oppressed, while also sharing the good news of Jesus. So it is our joy as a church to partner with some of them through our finances as well as our time and talents in volunteering.
We seek to use designated funds to strategically invest in these partnerships and other church initiatives. To help us invest wisely, a Justice & Outreach Board made up of staff and volunteers selects Renewal Partner Organizations and missionaries to whom we offer partial financial support.
For an explanation of what we mean by restorative justice, we recommend watching The Bible Project’s Justice video.
Here are some ways you can partner in God’s work in San Francisco and beyond.
