About JustFaith Greenville

JustFaith Ministries (a non-profit headquartered in Louisville, KY) forms, informs and transforms people of faith by offering programs and resources that sustain them in their compassionate commitment to build a more just and peaceful world.

JustFaith invites and prepares people of faith to help heal our world.  Through offerings that include the 24-week JustFaith program and the 8-week JustMatters programs, participants are inspired by the study of social injustices facing the most vulnerable, the building of deep personal relationships, and immersion opportunities that take them out into their local community.  Over 50,000 people in the United States have participated in JustFaith programs.

JustFaith programs have been offered in the Greenville community for more than 10 years.  St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church was the first church in our area to offer JustFaith programs.  Over the years, the programs have flourished within other local churches and community groups including Christ Church, Westminster Presbyterian, First Baptist Greenville, St. Peters Episcopal, Triune Mercy Center, Mill Community Ministries, and a group of retired lifelong learners who met through their OLLI classes.

We organize the JustFaith Greenville network of graduates and inform them of relevant and on-going opportunities through e-newsletters.  We partner with local organizations to gather & educate our graduates and their friends so that we can collectively work to make Greenville a more just and compassionate community.

There are hundreds of JustFaith graduates in Greenville.  We are impacting our community and beyond.

JustFaith transforms people. Those people transform the world.

A native of Columbia, SC, Mallory first made her way to Greenville as a Furman Freshman where she studied Sociology and Poverty Studies. As a Furman student, Mallory lived in an intentional Christian Community as a member of the Vista House, an extension of the campus ministry Mere Christianity Forum. During her time living in community, Mallory discovered a passion for vegetable gardening and preparing food for others.

After graduating Furman she studied Baking & Pastry Arts at the Culinary Institute of America school in Hyde Park, New York. Her passion for baking bread took her through kitchens in Vermont, New York and most recently Big Sur, California, though she always felt a strong pull back to return to the southeast. Since moving back to Greenville 2 years ago, Mallory has worked with Project Host as the Director for their social enterprise, the Bakery.

As a fulltime employee of Mill Community Ministries, Mallory will devote half her time to supporting and strengthening the JustFaith Greenville community and the other half of her time will be focused on Mill Community Ministries’ new Incubator Kitchen program.
