Mission Overview
Jericho Partnership's motto is "Mobilizing Ministry .... Transforming a City" which goes a long way to describe this collaboration of Christ-centered ministries, congregations and foundations serving the youth, homeless and other at risk populations of Danbury. Several of Jericho's mission partners were already among The First Congregational Church’s mission family before the founding of Jericho Partnership. Jericho Partnership's roster of local mission partnerships now includes Amos House, Athletes of Christ, Christian Community Outreach Ministries, Highways and Hedges, Hopeline Pregnancy Resource Centers, Pathways Academy, Pathways Danbury, Samaritan Health Center and Young Life Danbury. Recently, Jericho Partnership launched another major initiative: Spring Street Ministry, a long-term, multi-faceted, volunteer-based outreach on Spring Street -- a downtown Danbury neighborhood associated with crime, drugs and prostitution. First Congregational Church is one of 12 area partner churches and two partner foundations, the Maranatha Foundation and the William J. Knight Foundation. Many members of our congregation are involved with or have participated in Jericho Partnership activities. Opportunities for local, hands-on mission work are abundant for people of all ages.
