Neighborhoods: What is Working

How to Connect Neighborhood Churches to Your Local Community

Transcription of John and Peter's February 20, 2018 conversation with Paul Sparks, a leading voice in the growing Parish Movement. Paul has worked in more than 1,000 neighborhoods around the world to identify, connect, and support groups that want to have their neighborhoods flourish. In their conversation Paul talked about his own and his colleagues' work with local churches, academic institutions, and community organizations in the United States and abroad and offered ideas on how to translate their experiences into their listeners' own community-building work.

How a few plants, a mural, and less pavement could bring more to a neighborhood than one big ministry.

Our Kind of March Madness

Winter may be hanging on longer than expected (in some parts of the country), but at LISC, the month of March has blossomed like never before. In the last three weeks, we raised $68 million—from longstanding donors such as State Farm and Wells Fargo, through new partnerships with ProMedica, Union Pacific and the San Francisco Foundation, and with expanded public resources from the CDFI Fund and the city of Washington, DC. We’ll invest it. We’ll leverage it. We’ll use it to lift up underinvested neighborhoods and develop the skills of talented people in our neighborhoods. There’s still much to do to foster economic opportunity in our communities and we are grateful for this support, which helps us do the job. What a month it’s been. And we've still got a week to go!

"Our partnership with State Farm is vital to advancing this important work.”
