Jesus & Justice
Explore practical ways to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God and others in the city, understanding that justice is not peripheral but intrinsic to the Gospel.
Session A - Wednesday, Nov 9 (10:45a)
Community Engagement via Discipleship • Noemi Chavez
Not everyone is meant to vocationally serve the local church. Therefore, we need to identify, equip, and release leaders that can bring the kingdom to neighborhoods through a variety of organizational efforts (i.e., businesses, nonprofits, and local government). Join Noemi to explore this concept and discuss promising practices of discipling leaders for community engagement.
Session B - Wednesday, Nov 9 (1:30p)
Living Undivided • Chuck Mingo & Troy Jackson
How can your church create experiences for others to impact the most marginalized people in society? In this session, Chuck and Troy will explain the how and what of a 6-week program, LivingUNDIVIDED™, designed to move individuals from being mere consumers of knowledge to actively engaged contributors investing in the work of racial healing and justice in their communities.
Session C - Thursday, Nov 10 (10:45a)
The Local Church & Mental Health • Alexandra Thompson & Celina Noble
Past wounds, trauma, and lies we learned initially as truths all play a part in how people may misunderstand or misinterpret the goodness of God. Join Alexandra and Celina to learn how your church can lead the way in providing best practices in caring for the mental health of people in your community.
Session D - Thursday, Nov 10 (1:30p)
Beyond Seasonal Justice • Josh Buck
Many churches incorrectly see justice as a seasonal project or peripheral program. Yet, Jesus expects Christians, therefore churches, to center the work of justice. In this workshop, Josh will share practical insights to help you lead your church in becoming more consistently dedicated to addressing justice concerns in its community.
