Our Mission: Mobilize Faith Leaders To Advocate For Public Schools In North Carolina

For Newsletter Archives, Recent News Articles, and more:

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

(Benjamin Campbell, “Partners For The Kingdom” in Lloyd, Lallie, ed. All our Children: The Church’s Call To Address Education Inequity (New York: Church Publishing, 2017) 53.)

We live out our call to love God and our neighbors by supporting children across NC and the public schools they attend. 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.
