Our Mission: Loving God and Loving Our Neighbors by Advocating for Equitable, Adequately Funded Public Schools for ALL Children in NC
We encourage faith communities to help provide “wrap-around” care and ministry to local schools, principals, teachers, staff and schoolchildren, and to advocate for children by supporting our free, public education system, to promote social justice for children, and to advance legislation that enriches North Carolina children, families, and communities.
We’re proud to be a part of the community, serving our friends and neighbors. “In one particular way, the public school is still the most ‘Christian’ of American Institutions. It is Christian because it includes everybody and is based on the principle of God’s love for every human being. No other social institution actively lives out that principle. Public education is at great risk because many people do not understand or embrace that task, its difficulties, its costs, and ultimately, its opportunities.” ~Rev. Ben Campbell, Episcopal Priest

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Pastors for NC Children is not just another education organization. What makes us different is that we are an independent ministry and outreach mission group comprised of pastors and church leaders from across the state, organizing to support quality public education opportunities for all NC children. P4NCC stands with and for our children, families and communities throughout NC, and advocates for legislation and policies that promote equitable and adequately funded public schools for ALL NC kids!
We are an independent affiliate of Pastors for Children. We are proud to be connected to this growing network of Pastors for Children groups in: Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.
