Through the Public Witness Ministry of the Pennsylvania Council of Churches we…
- empower people of faith, through education and skill-building, to make a difference for the common good in the public square;
- advocate on behalf of the Council’s member church bodies before Pennsylvania’s legislative and administrative branches of government.
