Jim Crawford, Executive Director, Community Faith Partners


September 16, 2011 at 7:00 PM EDT


Chesterton House – Residence

Please join us for a fascinating discussion with Jim Crawford ’78, the founding director of Community Faith Partners. CFP is a local organization that mobilizes volunteers (including students) to bring Christian care to the least among us – including inmates of the Tompkins County jail.

A former government major at Cornell, Jim now believes that public policy is important but incomplete. “God calls humans to leave their comfort and privilege to care for other humans who are experiencing less privilege or outright oppression,” he writes. “And we’ve learned that Christians grow spiritually when we engage our neighbors in need.”
