Building Community

"It {the faithful city} must embrace those who are in the struggle for equity in our society...This vision must be inclusive enough to have a sense of balance...and love must be its motive and justice its means.”

~ Bishop John Hurst Adams

GBM’s vision is a faith-based commitment to living out the pursuit of peace and justice in our community. Therefore, bringing into relationship diverse communities of faith to identify root causes of human suffering and raising up issues of both direct assistance and social justice is an integral part of GBM’s work.

We work intentionally and faithfully with people across racial, economic, political and social identities to build working relationship among faith communities, businesses, civic groups and social service networks seeking to engage the entire community in responding to human needs and the call to justice for all people.

GBM is always at task finding ways for people to be guided more fully by their faith in the struggle for a more just and compassionate community.
