Justice & Reconciliation

The Justice and Reconciliation Team is one of four ministries that relate to the Vision Alignment Team.  This team promotes excellence and fruitfulness in congregational life and ecclesial structures that reflect full diversity, works of justice, and participation by all people. A number of advocacy agencies relate to this work including interreligious concerns, Religion and Race, Commission on the Status and Role of Women, Church and Society, Health and Human Services institutions and the Committees on African American, Asian American, Native American and Hispanic Ministries. This work takes place primarily at the local church level. For more information, please contact the Conference Office 704.535.2260
