Mission Statement

Richmond Hill is an ecumenical Christian community and covenant fellowship which maintains a retreat center and place of prayer in the historic Monte Maria monastery on Church Hill in the center of metropolitan Richmond. Our mission is to advance the healing of metropolitan Richmond through hospitality, healing, prayer, racial reconciliation, and spiritual development. A residential community of 12-15 persons keeps a daily rhythm of prayer and a common life, based on a common Rule of Life. Richmond Hill's Community and covenant fellowship keep the monastery and its grounds in trust for the citizens of metropolitan Richmond. The gardens, chapel, and library are open to the public every day of the week except Monday before 4 p.m. Retreats and spiritual direction are available for individuals and groups of up to 40 persons. Our covenant fellowship is simply an open-ended group of persons from throughout greater Richmond who covenant to pray for the healing of the metropolitan city. The Richmond Hill Community exists to provide a long-term and prayerful base for communication and mutual ministry among churches and individuals in metropolitan Richmond, crossing racial, economic, jurisdictional and denominational lines. Prayer services and retreats are offered daily throughout the year, and groups who are holding their own retreats join together in prayer for the city before meals. The Richmond Hill Community and fellowship work to support and develop relationships between churches and other groups, businesses, and governmental entities seeking to make metropolitan Richmond a healthy and just community. The relationships formed at Richmond Hill result in a number of projects in community and social ministry, including particularly ministry in public schools.

February 2014)

Rev. Benjamin P. Campbell

Term:

Since Jan 1988

Profile:

Episcopal priest since 1966. Communications officer and Program Director of Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Executive Director of Richmond Urban Institute and Home Base, Inc. Vicar of two Episcopal churches and Interim Rector of one. Assistant Pastor at St. Paul's, Richmond.

Leadership Statement:

It is almost impossible to explain to people the importance of a consistent, enduring, constant place of prayer and reflection for the metropolitan city. But Richmond has had such a place since the Sisters of the Visitation of Monte Maria came to Richmond Hill in 1866, right after the War. The city was traumatized. Black people were traumatized - free, but dealing with the horror of what had been the largest slave market on the East Coast of America for more than a generation. And white people were traumatized from the carnage of the Civil War. The city had been burned. The sisters came, started a school, and began to pray for the city. Today that prayer continues in an ecumenical Christian community of men and women. With the prayer commitment, comes relationships, racial relations, conversations and organizations addressing metro Richmond's tremendous unmet needs. Segregation in metro Richmond has been replaced not by integration but by disintegration. Since the integration of the schools, the population has doubled but the area of sprawl has increased 500%. Nonetheless, it is a great community which holds within it not only the central stream of the history of the nation, but also some of the hopes for the nation's future. Each of us needs to take quiet time with the God of our understanding to be the people God needs us to be; and then, in constructive and ad hoc fellowship with others, we can help rebuild the city which God and our ancestors hoped and prayed would be here. It's hard to explain how keeping this community of prayer here in this monastery gives concrete results and makes sense; but it is clear that it does. It is a capital investment in the spiritual and moral life of our metropolitan city, and ultimately in its physical and social success as well. The Rev. Ben Campbell, Pastoral Director

Program Description:

Richmond Hill staffs and co-sponsors the Micah Association, an association of more than 100 faith communities which work with the elementary schools of Richmond. More than 1400 volunteers provide mentoring, tutoring, classroom assistance, and special projects in cooperation with the principal of 25 schools. A single program director helps to arrange, negotiate and encourage the relationships between the faith communities and the schools. Training is provided by the Virginia Mentoring Partnership and Micah collaborates where possible with Communities in Schools (CIS) to provide a site coordinator/volunteer coordinator. Cost of program director is only $65,000 annually. Support is needed for individual site coordinators with CIS. Micah attempts to contribute from $25,000 - $40,000 in a school to match CIS in site coordinator position, which is proven to double or triple the effectiveness of volunteer and community support.

Program Long-Term Success:

Incorporation of the Richmond Public School System into the community of concern of the entire metropolitan area; proper funding of $800 million backlog in school capital expenditures; availability of special program and funding for the 90% of our children who are in poverty and need special help; removal of discriminatory aid formulas at the state which give more per student to suburban districts; and development of an integrated system of education and opportunity for all the students of metropolitan Richmond.

Program Short-Term Success:

Improvement of test scores, graduation rates, and post-secondary education and employment for the 90% of the students of Richmond Public Schools who are on free and reduced lunch.

Program Success Monitored by:

The data collection on inner city schools is constant and overwhelming. More important for our purposes are the softer collections we do annually in which principals and faith communities report on the success of the volunteer efforts in student achievement, school atmosphere, and overall student social health.

Program Description:

Richmond Hill sponsors, with AK Pride (the Armstrong-Kennedy Alumni Association), a leadership program for 32 high school students at Armstrong, the most heavily stressed high school in metropolitan Richmond. Armstrong serves the children of seven public housing projects, with household incomes in the $10,000 - $13,000 range, who are most in danger of social breakdown and leaving school before completion. The program is working to develop more extensive mentoring networks for a larger percentage of the student body. In the past four years, all of the ALP students have graduated, all have post-secondary placements, and a significant number have attended four-year colleges on scholarships. Travelers' Insurance is a major partner. Seed grant funding is expiring; funding is needed for the 2011-2012 school year, cost $100,000.

Program Long-Term Success:

Success of graduates in employment and post-secondary education. Improvement of positive atmosphere and motivation in Armstrong High School, as shown in increased on-time graduation, post-secondary placement, and number of mentors and tutors working with Armstrong students. Improvement in relationship of larger community and potential employers to the needs and potentials of students from this most distressed portion of our citizenry.

Program Short-Term Success:

Grades and graduation and placement of our graduates, as well as our own experience of each child.

Program Description:

Richmond Hill engages suburban and urban congregations in a ""summer mission project at home."" One or more suburban or out-of-east-end congregation sends a mission team of ten persons to live at Richmond Hill from Monday-Saturday on each of four weeks during July and August. A Church Hill congregation provides a similar ten-person team in residence. The 20 adults work with a director and assistant director, and four college-age interns, to produce a summer camp for 50 children each week. The students are rising third and fourth graders from the elementary schools of Church Hill, most of whom live in public housing. The camps are held at four different churches in Church Hill. The program focuses both on the care of the children and the interaction and learning of the adults. Cash cost is $65,000 annually, yielding a program worth $200,000.

Program Long-Term Success:

Increased longterm relationship between church members of different races, denominations, and jurisdictions in metropolitan Richmond, and an increasing sense of common ministry and locality. Increased understanding between races, and understanding of needs, issues, opportunities, and potential of our inner city children. Understanding of social issues of public housing, jurisdictional segregation, taxation differentials, employment issues facing inner city people.

Program Short-Term Success:

200 adults and 200 children participate effectively and learn each summer.
