A lead Congregation is one that has been:

  • designated a Veteran Friendly Congregation, and 

  • has had two members of the congregation take the Journey Home from War training and incorporated the learning into the ministry of the congregation.  

In addition, we will work with LEAD congregations   

  • to plan a 1 hour workshop for the church to educate the whole church community about the needs of veterans and military families.  
  • to support and facilitate the development of resources and contacts for a focused outreach ministry with veterans.  

This program was originally funded through the Barnes Foundation,  A United Church of Christ Commission on Mission and Justice project.
