A Voice in the Village:
Howard Moody’s Legacy of Public Ministry
ASSURING RELEVANT VOICES IN A WORLD IN TRANSITION
Howard Moody’s incredible legacy for public ministry - his model for church - is to act in the world with clarity and courage. Our time in history offers amazing challenge and opportunity to be a crossover point - a strong voice - in the midst of cultural, political and economic diversity. Our goal is to secure financial reserves beyond our traditional funding base and budget to assure Judson’s strong progressive leadership, to strengthen its innovative cultural presence, and to preserve the historic building that makes all these ministries possible.
YOUR GIFT SUPPORTS JUDSON’S CONTINUING DYNAMIC PUBLIC OUTREACH IN MANY WAYS
The Howard Moody Leadership Fund for Public Ministry
While this dedicated congregation underwrites its ongoing parochial work, we also believe it is imperative to nurture, train, and support clergy and lay leaders to counterbalance the voices of fear and injustice now heard so loudly in our country. The Fund ensures Judson’s ability to maintain a leading voice in the ongoing conversations and the fight for justice and reconciliation that must be the role of people of faith.
The Judson Building Campaign Fund
|Social Justice Programs |
Judson develops programs that many mainstream institutions do not. Innovative in its programming, Judson often partners with emerging thinkers, artists and progressive institutions to act in the world with clarity and courage. Current programs that exemplify “church in the world” include immigrant rights and participation in Occupy Faith, the interfaith coalition responding to the spirit and ethical issues of Occupy Wall Street. Our goal is to strengthen current anddeveloping programs with higher levels of funding, forward planning and partnerships with other institutions.
