The Micah Institute

“We seek to train a new generation of faith-rooted prophetic organizers whose hearts sing because they are exercising their ministerial gifts at the places of the worlds’ greatest need.”

Mission

 Inspired by the Hebrew prophet Micah’s call to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God, we seek to inspire and educate faith leaders to fight poverty and injustice.

The Micah Institute:

  • Educates prophetic leaders to advocate against racial, economic, and environmental injustice.
  • Offers a powerful voice to ‘think globally and act locally and globally.’
  • Opportunities for outreach with Micah Community Advocacy Network MICAH.

Vision

“We envsion a time and space where all the cities of the world hear God’s call to them to be sites of shalom in which ministers are prophetic change agents for revolutionary transformation”

Act Justly and Love Mercy

The program is an active partner of the global Micah Challenge (www.micahchallenge.us) involving 40 countries and the Living Wage NYC campaign for the proposed Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act (www.livingwagenyc.org).

But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the LORD, and with justice and might. (Micah 3:8)
