Help Us Transform Our Kitchen into a Refugee Job Training Site!


Exciting news! The International Rescue Committee is writing St. Luke's into a federal community food security grant for a three year, $400K refugee job training project that would involve growing a food product in our vacant lot and processing/packaging it for sale in an upgraded St. Luke's kitchen. 
The grant requires a 100% match, and the IRC will figure out most of it, but I've signed up St. Luke's to get $50K in pledges for the kitchen upgrade portion of the project, which would bring the kitchen up to commercial (you-can-sell-to-the-public) standards.

Join us for a celebration of new ministry November 5!

 

We are thrilled to begin this new adventure with the people of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in San Diego's North Park neighborhood.  Laurel and I will serve as co-pastors and aim to strengthen this Christian community as it seeks justice and healing in this time and place.

We hope you'll join us for a celebration of new ministry at 4 pm on Saturday, November 5.  Becky Modesto, a board member of Genesis Church, will offer a sermon, and we'll have plenty of Sudanese songs to dance to and food to enjoy afterwards.

Laurel and I have two children, Robin and Jem, who are also excited to get to know all the young people of St. Luke's!
