Meck Groot has worked for many years at the intersection of faith and social change. As Justice Ministries Lead for the region, she inspires and supports congregational leaders for vital, faith-centered justice ministry within and beyond the congregation through spiritual leadership practice.
Prior to joining staff at Mass Bay and Clara Barton Districts, Meck acted as Co-Director for the Women’s Theological Center where she worked with a multiracial, multicultural team of staff and partners to bring spiritual leadership understandings and practices to individuals and organizations working for social change.
She is a graduate of the Episcopal Divinity School where she earned a Master’s in Theology concentrating on feminist liberation theology and ethics.
One of her favorite quotes is from Dr. King: “Love is the willingness to go to any length to restore community.” She and other regional colleagues maintain Be the Love, a website and blog to inspire living and building Beloved Community.
