Our Commitment to Racial Justice

We Are Committed to Racial Justice

Churchome recognizes the killing of Black people as a national crisis. As a collective community, we grieve, as God grieves, by the continued targeting, torturing and killing of Black men, women, boys and girls. We recognize the ongoing issue of racism in America and around the world, and the fatal consequences that it results.

In a commitment to be a part of the solution, we have determined some actionable first steps for Churchome to take. We understand these actions are only a starting point, and our commitment must, and will be, ongoing. We invite you to join us in the fight for racial justice.

1. Pray 

  • For Jesus to help you search your own heart and reveal needed transformations.
  • For the healing and safety of Black people.
  • For the Church to preach and live out the gospel in truth.
  • For real change in our nation.

2. Act

We are committed to instituting ongoing training around anti-racism and unconscious bias for our staff, and to creating spaces for our community to have ongoing conversations for growth and change. We invite you to connect with us on Pastor Chat—our staff and team are available for additional resources, support, and prayer—and join us in weekly digital meetups for Open Conversations on Race.

Open Convo on Race for Young People

Tuesday, October 20 | 7pm (PT)

This will be an opportunity for young people to sit with Churchome Youth Pastors via Zoom and have a meaningful conversation around the topic of racial justice. We will be answering questions like “What is racism?” “What is the church doing to help?” and “How can we play a part in our own personal lives to make a difference.”

3. Give

We are committed to investing in organizations that are already doing the work to actively counteract the systemic issues of racism.

You can learn more about the financial partnerships we’re actively giving to below, and you can give directly to support the fight for racial justice HERE.

Equal Justice Initiative

EJI is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the U.S., challenging racial and economic injustice, and protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.

The John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation

The JVMPF for Justice, Reconciliation, and Community Development is a non-profit organization that teaches and promotes the principles of Christian Community development and racial reconciliation.

Community Passageways

A Seattle-based organization, Community Passageways creates alternatives to incarceration for youth and young adults by rebuilding communities through committed relationships centered on love, compassion, and consistency.

So then, from now on, we have a new perspective that refuses to evaluate people merely by their outward appearances. For that’s how we once viewed the Anointed One, but no longer do we see him with limited human insight.

~ 2 Corinthians 5:16 (TPT)
