Mission & Strategic Plan


Inspired by the faith commitments of the congregations that inform us, the Broome County Council of Churches is an organization that collaborates with many facets of our community. It acts as a hub whose spokes reach out to various congregations, businesses and constituencies in the community to bring them together to serve, educate and advocate for the common good. It serves as an incubator to develop replicable programs that provide localized service.
