State-of-the-art trainings for faith communities, leaders, and individuals

The 2024 National Confronting Christian Nationalism Tour is designed to help faith communities, leaders, and individuals respond in faithful ways to the current threat of Christian Nationalism in the United States.

Seminars with an emphasis on the growing threat of Christian nationalism

This events provide a platform for dialogue, education, and action. Together, we can work towards safeguarding the principles of democracy, religious freedom, and the separation of church and state.

A cross-country bike ride for common good immigration

We finished our 3,200 mile ride along the entire U.S. / Mexico border and the U.S. coastline—66 days straight to listen, learn, and advocate for Common Good immigration practices and policies.

This full-length documentary will be completed if funding is secured

As we biked across the United States along the U.S. / Mexico border, we heard incredible stories and now it is time to share them with the world.


Greater Things serves as a small hinge to open a big door leading to a better world for all.

Faith, belief and religion exert positive, powerful influence on cultural assumptions and behavioral norms in the United States. And, while there is often great beauty and common good results from faith, at the same time too many religious narratives far too often feed harmful and destructive mindsets, policies and practices.

Greater Things makes change by helping faith leaders and individuals leave behind the narratives of exclusion, violence, greed, sexism, exploitation and racism rooted in white supremacy, and embrace instead faith and cultural narratives of reconciliation, inclusion, nonviolence, generosity, equality, and sustainability.

This change must begin by influencing the content and conversations within America’s dominant religious community, Christianity.


As with all great dreams, Greater Things is part spirit & effort and part resources & money.

Greater Things is built on a broad and balanced approach to funding. As a registered non-profit organization in the State of Minnesota we are prepared to receive tax deductible donations.
