The Micah Project: Empowering Others, Acting Justly
Dennis and Deborah Walsh
“And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8, NIV).
Producing Man from Macedonia is a project of The Micah Project. The mission of The Micah Project is to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ as a means to reconciliation, justice, and mercy. This includes supporting activities that proclaim the life-transforming power of the Christian gospel. The Project's three areas of emphasis are technical empowerment, building the capacity of organizations through consultation; evangelistic and social justice empowerment; and financial empowerment, making grants and other financial gifts to support activities that proclaim the gospel. A North Carolina nonprofit, the Project is qualified to receive tax-deductible contributions.
