City of Soul
Each of our ESC members will be working in one of five Memphis-area organizations with long experience and substantive work in Memphis, a southern city along the banks of the Mississippi River with a history steeped in civil rights and in music. Those organizations are:
- St. Columba Episcopal Conference and Retreat Center
- Shelby County Public Defender’s Office
- MIFA (Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association)
- Emmanuel Episcopal Center
City of Soul is a partnership between Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal, sponsoring corps members at St. Columba, BRIDGES and the Shelby County Public Defender, and Church of the Holy Communion, sponsoring corps members at MIFA and Emmanuel Center. Corps members will act as links between sponsoring parishes and partnering organizations, building relationships and contributing to their transformative work in the community.
