Community Faith Partners’ Jail Ministry provides an opportunity to offer support, care, and hope to inmates in Tompkins County Jail. CFP Jail Ministry began in 1999. Since then, we have given more than 1000 Bibles to the inmates. We also provide hope through the Holistic Hardware endeavor. This curriculum, created by Joseph Holland, is designed to promote self-help with the assistance of community mentors.
The tools of holistic hardware are designed to help people who want to help themselves. Using time-tested principles, biblical and real-life role models, dramatic sketches, and inspirational testimonies, Holistic Hardware focuses on what Joe Holland calls “the ten tools of effective compassion.” This program has been classified as the inmates’ favorite.
LET'S TALK UNITY
The body of Christ is called to unity, but the dividing wall of racism continues to permeate our nation and the church. This discussion will address the historical aspects of racism and the church as well as analyze the current situation regarding racism in the church. The panelists will examine ways the church can begin to address racial injustices and offer solutions that seek to eradicate racism.
RACIAL RECONCILIATION PROGRAM
Christ is calling for unity in the Body of Christ. Yet, the sin of racism and its effects on all races continues to permeate our churches and communities. In a collaborative effort, let us move from knowledge to action. It is time for the Church, all of us, to heal and lead in transformational racial reconciliation for our sakes and the sake of the Kingdom. This forum is designed to build relationships that promote racial reconciliation and healing.
Partner with Community Faith Partners through volunteer services.

Community Faith Partners’ Care Day began out of an endeavor to meet the need of someone whose need wasn’t being met by anyone else. The group of pastors, leaders, and other individuals gathered volunteers and resources needed and became Christ’s hands and feet to help this individual. After just one day of hard work, the team installed streetlights in four different places around town that did not previously have light. That became known as the “City of Lights” project and was a tangible and literal way to bring light to the darkness. Care Day was born from this expression of generosity.
Care Day is an exciting time to come together and make a difference in Tompkins County. The cooperation ensures community involvement. Community Faith Partners began its mission with the purpose of helping those who needed assistance in our community. We were able to do this by doing together what one person or church could not do alone. In the early years of Care Day, we assisted our community by putting lights in the park, cleaning up the highway, assisting the elderly with gardening, raking leaves, and spring cleaning, and CFP Care Day has burgeoned into a major Spring and Fall event.
