Thirty years ago, Bishop Ed Peecher founded Chicago Embassy Church, a predominantly African-American congregation in one of the poorest neighborhoods in the South Side of Chicago.
Today, his job isn't limited to leading worship services on Sundays. During the week, Bishop Peecher devotes countless hours running the church's many community ministries, such as the Chicago Peace Campaign, which has been successful in bringing peace to areas devastated by violence. There's also the Journeymen program that mentors at-risk youth, and a homeless ministry focused on feeding the hungry and providing blankets and toiletry kits. Bishop Peecher lives only minutes away from his church in order to better serve his community. He is able to do this because of the parsonage allowance, a tax law that allows religious employees to live nearby their work. Bishop Edward Peecher of Chicago Embassy Church, Father Patrick Malone of Holy Cross Anglican Church, and the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, filed to intervene in the lawsuit, standing up to the atheists' attempts to overturn this law just because it also happens to benefit religious groups.
