Founded in 1954 on the principle that working together churches can do more to improve the lives of ‘the least among us’ than any one church can do alone, The Lehigh Conference of Churches addresses food and nutrition, housing, mental and physical health, and the barriers preventing at-risk youth from succeeding. 138 member churches, 3,000 volunteers, and a staff of 30 live out our mission:
Responding to the call of Jesus Christ, the mission of The Lehigh Conference of Churches is to unite communities of faith as ecumenical partners. Putting our faith into action, we minister to and advocate for those in need and encourage all to reach their full potential.
