Designed to cultivate leaders who are interested in civic engagement, public-private partnerships, and being a social justice advocate while strengthening church and community partnerships.

how c2 institute works


As part of the program, FACE provides opportunities for the cohort to meet with various leaders in government, corporate, faith institutions and the community while equipping them with practical skills as fundraising, media and government relations, partnership building, networking, financial literacy, grant writing, eventing, advocacy, program development, outreach strategy, church administrative work and  community needs and data points. Each fellow will also be working on a capstone project that they will be launching or strengthening.

Pastor Suzana Kim,

Wilshire UMC

I learned that there's a lot of work to be done. For my first step, I hope to develop relationships with local officials. 

Rev. Won-Seok Yuh, Harris UMC

There are more resources than we could account for that are more readily accessible! The willingness of others to support or partner may be higher than we assume individually and as a community.

Rev. Brent Ross,

Normal Heights United

I learned that I have been limiting the Normal Heights Community Hub by my own strengths (and more to the point) weaknesses. I need to share this info and training with the others in the project so that THEIR strengths can be shared and let go of so much of a top down approach to leadership.
