Your donations enable us to continue transforming progressive Christian leadership and to create resources that nurture our faith journeys. If everyone reading this right now gives just $40, we will reach our goal of $70,000 by the end of the year. Some can give more, some less. We invite you to give as you are able.

Our actions, leadership, resources, curricula, and liturgies have been easing the pain, suffering and degradation inherent in society today. For 20 years ProgressiveChristianity.org has offered FREE resources (everything from music to liturgy) while growing an international network of people like you searching for and building community. We do all of this with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

Thank you for partnering with us! Donate Here
