Mission Statement

Sojourners -- Christians for justice and peace -- is a voice and vision for social change. Founded in 1971 as a faith-based organization, Sojourners provides an alternative perspective on faith, politics, and culture through its magazine, Web site, e-mail services, media commentaries, and public events. Ecumenical and progressive, Sojourners lifts up the biblical connection between social justice and spiritual renewal. Sojourners nurtures community by bringing together people from the various traditions and streams of the church and also hosts an annual program of voluntary service. In our lives and in our work, we seek to be guided by the biblical principles of justice, mercy, and humility.


Sojourners is 501(c)3 not for profit organization located in Columbia Heights D.C. Our mission is to proclaim and practice the biblical call to integrate spiritual renewal and social justice. Sojourners ministries grew out of the Sojourners Community, located in Southern Colombia Heights, an inner-city neighborhood in Washington, D.C. Sojourners is a connecting point for Christians nationally and internationally. We examine pressing moral, political, social, and economic issues in a spiritual, theological, and action-oriented context. We strive to reach people inside and outside of the institutional church, in order to develop a voice of Christian conscience and create a movement of people who embrace the role of faith in the public arena. We work to help people integrate personal and social transformation, spirituality and politics, prayer and peacemaking, the church and the world, and the prophetic tradition and the public arena. Sojourners seeks to amplify its vision for faith in public life, through the various traditions and streams of the church, by strengthening and expanding a media communications network that reinforces the editorial voice and mission of Sojourners magazine. We strive to mentor a new generation of Christian activists and to promote racial justice and reconciliation.
