Community of Christ is an international faith movement with 250,000 members in more than 60 nations.

They develop and equip people of all ages to generously share the peace of Jesus Christ and to courageously pursue justice. Community of Christ offers a community where you can belong, be valued and loved, deepen your spirituality, and discover a purpose that can change lives and communities. Community of Christ is represented by Steve Kellogg. Steve Kellogg is a member of the Community of Christ Peace and Justice Team.
“Community of Christ looks forward to partnering with fellow Christians and peacemakers promoting peace and justice for all in the Middle East,” said Mr. Kellogg.
CMEP is grateful to welcome our newest member organization and looks forward to increased opportunities to work constructively toward Middle East peace with Community of Christ, Mr. Kellogg, and our other member communions.
