This is not your everyday church with an old building. Judson is a leading edge organization with an innovative stance on what it means to steward a sacred site in partnership with the community. Most of us know of a cool church somewhere, and most offer their space as well as host social programs. This commonly understood conception can often disguise just how forward thinking the work and scale of activity within Judson’s landmark location is. As the facility reaches a critical juncture in the lifespan of key infrastructure, and increasing demands on accessibility, we’re excited to share a model that is both as credible to secular interests as it is inspiring to religious ones. Supporting Judson’s capital campaign sends a message of incentive to organizational leaders and urban planners everywhere that open and active sacred sites can commit to a vision of use that will cohere the shared concerns and vibrant expressions of a community and it’s valued locations.
