Clergy and community leaders set the direction for Gamaliel on immigration and other issues


The purpose of the Gamaliel National Clergy Caucus (GNCC) is to act within the Gamaliel network in ways that faithfully witness to the God of love, power, justice and community. The GNCC will:

  • Serve as the shaper and bearer of the comprehensive vision of congregation-based organizing for Gamaliel affiliates through each affiliate’s clergy caucus
  • Offer counsel, direction and prophetic corrective to clergy caucuses of Gamaliel affiliates and to the national network as a whole
  • Support and expand congregation-based organizing
  • Develop a body of theological materials relevant to principles of congregation-based organizing
  • Challenge organizers to be attentive to the needs, theologies and values of the religious communities, and
  • Strengthen relationships between the Gamaliel Foundation and denominational judicatories
Members of the GNCC also act as a resource to clergy and local congregation-based organizations throughout the year, but particularly during the spring, when the caucus puts on an annual training.  

Clergy Training

We conduct an annual three- day training program conducted by and for affiliate clergy, typically in early spring. This training includes tools, concepts and methodologies for becoming effective in balancing the demands of their own institutions with issues of justice and community concerns. It also provides a supportive network for clergy experiencing similar demands.
