Facing Our Future
By Curt Peterson, Interim President & CEO
“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or to the present are certain to miss the future...”-JFK
The Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches (GMCC) is indeed going through a number of changes. These changes, although challenging, bring new energy and direction towards sustaining the organization's future.
Working closely with our many stakeholders, we are affirming who we are in relation to who we serve, deeply rooted by a legacy of faith-based work. By developing new strategies for our social and human services delivery, we are allowing changes to happen in areas that need it most. In the midst of it all, we remain steadfast to our mission of uniting people of faith and serving people in need.
A Century Of Compassion and Beyond
