Middle Collegiate Church is a multiethnic/multiracial church. We believe leadership is rooted in individual spiritual practices and nurtured in a spiritual community. From the planning of our worship celebrations to adult education, it is part of our mission to grow leaders and deploy activists for racial justice, economic justice, and LGBTI justice. If you are outside of New York City, our worship celebrations stream live each Sunday at 11:45 AM (EST).

We are in a close partnership with The Middle Project, a non-profit institute that prepares ethical leaders for a just society. Each year The Middle Project produces The Revolutionary Love Conference for clergy and lay leaders to learn skills to build multiethnic/multiracial congregations.

Registration for the 2019 conference, Revolutionary Love: The Politics of Faith is ongoing. The conference will be held at Middle Church from Apri 5-7, 2019. Register here!

2018 Revolutionary Love Conference Videos:
As we mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King, our nation’s leading civil rights activists and faith leaders gathered for the conference, Revolutionary Love: Complete the Dream. Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, Ruby Sales, Rev. Dr. William Barber, Sister Simone Campbell, Rev. Brian McLaren, Valarie Kaur, Stosh Cotler, Rev. Traci Blackmon and Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis were among the confirmed speakers. As we seek to work against racism, poverty and militarism, we need Beloved Community and practical tools to create a more perfect union. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Watch videos from the conference.

The Middle Project also offers an interfaith Leadership Initiative for Young Adults (ages 20-40). The leadership laboratory teaches young professionals how to navigate conflict, create change, community organize, assess personal leadership strengths, understand race and culture, and engage in spiritual practices. The curriculum was partially informed by research by the Public Religion and Research Institute’s study on Millennials, faith, and social justice.
