One Response to “GJ Vision and Mission”

  • Donna Olsen:

    Hello,

    I am in care with MCC working toward ordination. Currently, I am working on my MDIV degree at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. Along with this degree, I am doing a concentration in Peace and Justice Studies. I am about to finish my internship with All God’s Children MCC in Minneapolis, and I am interested in becoming more involved with the Global Justice Ministry of the denomination. This is a major part of my calling, both personally and in my future as a pastor with MCC. Please send me more information about getting involved.

    Thanks and Blessings,
    Donna Olsen
