This Movement models something very different, I believe. CWACM seeks to gather as a faith community that honors diversity and works to understand and dismantle the barriers to growing that authentic community. And that’s one of the reasons why I am a member.

I support CWACM because they have provided me a place to be ALL of me. ALL of my identities are welcomed and accepted. I thank God for CWACM.

I support CWACM because we are living justice, building alliances, and confronting injustice, inequity and inhospitality. We will ordain two marvelous women in Tucson. I look forward to this time of celebration and justice!

Gandhi said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." By BEing with The Church Within A Church Movement, I am able to help co-create a new way of doing church that does not rely on systems of oppression.

CWACM helps me to be reminded daily of the seriousness of my call.

In all we do in this Movement there is an abundance of return - hope and safe spaces appear to those whose lives and ministry have been in peril. This is of invaluable worth!

Love is at the core of the Church Within A Church Movement. Its progressive approach to Being Church is all inclusive, all encompassing, all truth, and alright with me. God is Love and God loves us just as we are, thanks for the reminder CWACM. What a GREAT 10th anniversary weekend. I'm so proud of every member.

What a meaningful, extraordinary weekend celebration! I continue to learn, to grow and to be stretched by Church Within a Church Movement. The trust and life stories shared throughout the weekend convince me of the importance of the Movement in the lives of many.

Celebrating CWACM’s 10th anniversary helps me use "church" again – especially from Pamela's sermon – explaining the church equips more than it exhorts – quoting Yeshua, "Upon this rock, I will build my church." The word "church" is important – despite our mistakes over time. I am grateful.

CWACM members recently joined the Gathering at Geyerhouse for a weekend full of events (JustChurch St. Louis). Watching, listening and being part of the group's interaction was a powerful spiritual experience. Being a member of CWACM is a great way to test and grow your spiritual self.
