Mission Sustainability Projects

Bed

Affordable Housing/Land Use Theology

Affiliated with Southwestern Washington Synod

Helping congregations with their land-use planning is a critical avenue for Christians to promote justice, community, and the stewardship of creation.  By balancing the goals of community, justice, and environmental stewardship, we can counter the individualism, inequity, and carelessness that so readily degrade our communities and work towards the biblical vision of shalom. With this land use planning, we are helping congregations look at affordable housing ministries on their current  properties.
