Charlie Jensen Lectureship

The Mission and Service Ministry Area established this Social Justice lecture series to honor Charles Jensen. Mr. Jensen and his wife, Betty, became members of the Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church in 1977.

Charlie was instrumental in the formation of the Peacemaking and Social Justice committee at Sunnyvale Presbyterian and participated in the actions of that group until his passing in 2008. Charlie was an inspiration in the church, presbytery and the national organization as a leader in peacemaking.

On January 31, 2017, Jim Wallis, President and Founder of Sojourners, a national faith-based organization whose vision is to inspire people  to put their faith into action, was the first lecturer brought to our community through series. Approximately 900 people from the church and surrounding area attended the event.
