Impact Story

Building a Community

Inspired by her mother’s generosity, Shirleen Johnston was one of the first in her church to invest with Wesleyan Impact Partners when she learned that we funded the loan that made possible the literal expansion of Christ’s table at her home church, Community UMC, in Irwin, Pennsylvania.

Shirleen invested in Impact Certificates because she shares Wesleyan Impact Partners’ mission to help churches be anchors of love and belonging for the communities they serve.
