Partners in Faith

The Partners in Faith initiative brings the Memphis Urban League together with Memphis churches with the goal of empowering and inspiring church members to reach and exceed their economic potential.

Partners in Faith

The Urban League would like to partner with your church to provide access to our programs and services, including job training and educational programs.

“Partners in Faith” is a series of church-based programs and events focused on parental engagement, mentoring and economic empowerment that includes:

  • Urban League Sundays
  • Sign-up Sundays for membership in the Memphis Urban League at participating churches
  • Privileges associated with the Heritage level membership

Urban League Sundays

Urban League Sundays is a way for members at participating churches to learn about the Memphis Urban League on one designated Sunday per year. Those who join on Urban League Sundays will also receive a 10% discount on the membership level.

Our Partners in Faith team will work with your church’s representative to develop a plan for Urban League Sundays at your church, and will assist you with resources to ensure a successful event.

For information, call our office at 901-272-2491.

Be sure to provide your church’s name, person to contact and any additional information you think might be helpful.
