OUR STORY SO FAR

In September 2014, over 60 christian ministries in the St.Louis area joined together to engage in prayer, worship, and evangelism amidst the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri for what became known as the Ferguson response.
In January 2016; over 100 spiritual leaders gathered from around the country to St.Louis to pray for the emergence of a new breed of leadership to address the historical racial divide in America, and a multi-cultural spiritual awakening. During this gathering which culminated on January 18th, Martin Luther King,Jr.day; then a new civil righteousness movement was catalyzed.
For the next several years, PS JT travelled the country carrying the civil righteousness message to churches and conferences. As local civil righteousness expressions began to emerge in several cities, Civil Righteousness inc was formed as a 501(c)3 non profit in February 2018.

In the wake of America's racial reckoning , spun by the death of George Floyd , thousands adopted the civil righteousness models for engaging in biblical public action.
Today, the movement comprises over 400 volunteer organisers in 51 states and several countries.
The biblical pattern of personal repentance, corporate gathering in humility, communal mourning, and corporate prayer is the foundation of Civil Righteousness.
We desire for the fullness of Christ's character to be established within us. We want to be perfected by his love in a way that causes us to grow in mercy and possess our souls in humility in the face of inequity or offense.
We believe that biblical justice cannot be accomplished without the pursuit of righteousness. From that posture, we move into the arena of public action and trust that God will grant justice on our behalf
