THE ONE FUND

The One Fund exists to support the work of local African American churches and ministries whose communities, due to historic inequities, are disproportionately impacted by the recent crises in our Twin Cities.
These inequities, caused by systemic injustice, have been clearly exposed again by the effects of Covid 19 and the trauma surrounding the horrific death of George Floyd.

THE ONE FUND

The Black Church has a historic role of faithfully meeting the spiritual, social, and physical needs of its community. Right now these front-line churches and ministries are stretched and stressed as they seek to serve and support vulnerable communities impacted by Covid 19 and these recent traumatic events. We can help!
The One Fund offers grants to local churches and ministries as they proclaim the truth of the Gospel and demonstrate the love of God. Most pastors and leaders serving in these communities are bi-vocational. Some have lost their jobs as well as financial support from their congregations and ministries. Many are having to lay off staff and scale back vital programming. By contributing to this fund, you support these churches and ministries, and the vulnerable communities they serve.  
Let’s partner with these churches and ministries to ensure they can continue providing critical life-giving spiritual and practical service and support to their communities. We can make a difference as together we move towards rebuilding and restoring our cities through the Church.

 

Together we can change this story!

Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality. 2 Corinthians 8:13-14

"I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me." John 17:21

This picture at the King Center in Atlanta captured a poignant moment on the Sankofa Journey to Harmony trip.  Joined hands around the eternal flame, worshiping the Lord together in one voice, and committing to the pursuit of reconciliation. That flame is still burning and today we want to invite you to join hands and hearts to take another step on the journey to harmony. A simple step. A practical step. A significant step!
