PACE is committed to helping develop community leadership that accurately reflects the City's diverse population; further developing our Covenant for Racial Reconciliation program; providing diversity training to any and all interested residents; encouraging opportunities for community building; and supporting pulpit swaps to strengthen and unite the religious community. PACE is a subcommittee of the Eastpointe Community Chest Networking Forum (ECCNF). PACE was founded by Bishop Bill McCullum, Pastor at Bride of Christ Ministries, and retired Eastpointe Police Chief Mike Lauretti in 1999. Both are deeply dedicated to racial harmony and have worked tirelessly to promote racial harmony in our community.
