Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope


Idlewild Presbyterian Church is a founding member of the Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope (MICAH).

MICAH is a regional faith-and-value-based coalition working for social justice in the Memphis region. It is an “organization of organizations” that seeks to identify areas of social concern, find consensus regarding the way forward, and work with community leaders for lasting change. Their motto, taken from the prophet Micah, is to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).

MICAH is an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, which has empowered faith-based communities to work for the common good since 1986. Other Gamaliel affiliates, including the  Nashville Organized for Action and Hope (NOAH) have worked on issues ranging from affordable housing to transportation equity to youth violence prevention to anti-racism training. MICAH will choose its own issues following a democratic discernment process this spring, and Idlewild’s MICAH core group will keep the congregation informed and involved as that process unfolds.

CONTACT: Please get in touch with Sara Dorrien-Christians, our Outreach Coordinator, if you are interested in learning more about MICAH and/or being part of the core group that will guide Idlewild’s participation in the organization.
