About the Project

The Third Day Church Project (TDCP) was established by St. Sabina Church, through a grant from the Lilly Endowment. TDCP is designed to help churches develop a culture that facilitates ongoing learning while meeting the needs of their congregation through living out its mission and values.

St. Sabina seeks to partner and support churches throughout the Chicagoland area, who share in its passion for justice and desires to cultivate thriving congregations. This comprehensive model will foster learning for members in the cohort and abroad.

Working Hard to Better the Lives of Others



St. Sabina designed this program based on its understanding of the church. St. Sabina believes the church is the people, not the building. Therefore, the church must be sensitive to the changes in the community, so they can effectively meet the needs of their membership.


St. Sabina also believes that social justice is in the DNA of the gospel, and the church must fight on behalf of the marginalized and oppressed, so they can have an opportunity to manifest their purpose.
