The Passing of Ron Sider

The founder of Christians for Social Action, Ron Sider, passed away Wednesday night, July 27, 2022.
While we are sad that he is no longer with us, we are DEEPLY grateful for his faithfulness, his writings, and his leadership.  He was both humble and bold.  Humble in the ways that he held himself.  Bold in bearing witness to God’s heart for justice. 
Ron, you will be missed.  We thank God for the years we had with you.


Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Issues are big and complex.  Initiatives provide a starting point or additional challenge for people already involved. God invites us to participate in the work of shalom (peace with justice). These initiatives provide a starting point and resources for engaging with some of the world’s most challenging issues.
