Richmond Hill is a de facto association of clergy and churches throughout Metro Richmond. It maintains a common calendar of prayer, “Metro Richmond at Prayer,” in which participating churches pray in concert for the needs of the entire metropolitan community. It sponsors common activities for clergy and churches, and convenes them periodically. It brokers partnership relationships between churches, and between churches and community needs. In the fall of 2010, it is co-sponsoring the Metro Richmond Clergy Convocation with the School of Theology of Virginia Union University, at which public officials will discuss with clergy the most difficult issues they face. An extended network, and specific information on community needs, are under development. Cash to support communications and staff development needed is $85,000.
