We need your donations to continue affecting Christian leadership and to positively transform this world. If everyone reading this right now gave just $15, we would reach our goal of $70,000 by the end of the year.

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 been changing the world by encouraging spiritually minded individuals and organizations to adopt a revitalized faith.

Most of what we offer, we offer for free. And that includes thousands of articles, books, liturgy and community resources, music, reviews, curricula, and a thriving and growing international network of people like you searching and building community, all with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

ProgressiveChristianity.org is a global portal for hundreds of dedicated volunteer authors that simply want the movement to grow. For the same amount one spends on coffee each month, you can help sustain an organization dedicated to spreading the word of a compassionate and informed Christianity. Please help us keep ProgressiveChristianity.org online and growing. Thank you.

Co-creation, the promise that our thoughts, decisions and actions during the regular course of the day matter. We either choose to be aligned in the ways of Spirit or we choose not to be.
