Biography / Administrative History

The North Phoenix Corporate Ministry was a group of Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant Congregations in northern Phoenix, AZ who worked together in areas of education, worship, social concern, creative arts, and communication. In 1966, William Smith, the minister of Cross Roads Methodist Church, Samuel Lindamood, the minister of Orangewood Presbyterian Church, and Theodore Knotter, minister of the North Congregational Church of the Beatitudes, began meeting to become better aware of how they could work together. In the same year, Father John Odou, pastor of St. Francis Xavier Parish, had brought together a group of Catholic lay people interested in interfaith activities and ecumenical involvement. Following various joint worship services, discussions, and events, in 1967, clergy and laity of St. Francis and the Protestant congregations joined together to form the North Phoenix Corporate Ministry. Goals and structures were focused around: 1. Prayer, both private and in interfaith services; 2. Dialogue, both casual and professional; and 3. Social Action, churches working together on programs. In 1970, Sister Mary Christine Athans, a participant in the early organizing discussions and meetings, was appointed the Executive Director. From the beginning, both clergy and laity together were involved in the Ministry's development.
In 1968, Rabbi Moshe Tutnauer began working with NPCM and the Beth El Congregation joined the interfaith coalition. In 1970, Rabbi Albert Plotkin and the Temple Beth Israel Congregation, representing Reformed Judaism, became a part of NPCM. Over the next decade, Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, Shadow Rock Congregational, and Sunrise Presbyterian Church also joined.
The Ministry was deliberate in its purpose beyond services and programs. In "The Purpose of the North Phoenix Cooperate Ministry", 1973, it is agreed that all: 1. Acknowledge that we worship the same God; 2. Emphasize the similarities in our beliefs, and build cooperation and mutual regard; 3. Worship together periodically; 4. Foster knowledge and understanding of each other's beliefs; 5. Promote a willingness to listen to each other; 6. Promote carefully selected joint religious, educational and social action programs and activities; and 7. Become a model of practical interfaith action which can and will be implemented by other corporate groups.
From 1968 until 1986, NPCM put on a Fall School of Religious Studies, a Spring Forum educational series, hosted guest lectures, sponsored local social service efforts (including a food bank, preschool, and clothing bank), produced publications on ecumenism, held art festivals and craft fairs, and sponsored music and drama events. NPCM arranged a yearly interfaith Community Thanksgiving Service and Clergy Exchange between member congregations. NPCM also supported a social service agency, the Interfaith Cooperative Ministries, 1981 - 1985. In 1987, due to a decline in activities and a lack of support from the clergy, the North Phoenix Corporative Ministry was dissolved.
