Jericho Partnership grew out of a 1999 project when several hundred volunteers from urban and suburban Danbury, Conn., congregations began renovating a derelict, burned-out 1800s downtown factory. The result is Jericho House, the home of Cambodian New Life Evangelical Church and several independent Christ-centered ministires for at-risk adults.
As the five-year project progressed, a vision emerged for a Christian charitable organization that would mobilize Christ-centered word-and-deed ministries and congregations into a collaborative serving the city's at-risk communities. Jericho Partnership was formed, providng an ongoing demonstration of living uncompromisingly for the glory of God.
Since then Jericho has become a 501(c)3 cross-cultural organization providing financial, volunteer, facility and staff support to 10 autonomous ministries in Danbury, and collaborates with more than 20 urban and suburban congregations for year-round inner-city ministries and projects.
