Persons who want to gain the skills needed to transform the social justice issues around them are invited to attend a new conference this fall. Mobilizing the Church for Social Justice, Sept. 12-14, will prepare individuals to address social justice issues in a transformational way—to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world.
Hosted by the J. V. Morsch Center for Social Justice at Trevecca Nazarene University, this conference will feature the following speakers: Dan Boone, president of Trevecca; Jo Anne Lyon, general superintendent of the Wesleyan Church; Carla Sunberg, co-superintendent of the East Ohio District of the Church of the Nazarene; Jim Copple, consultant to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries; and others.
Explaining what participants can expect from this conference, Jamie Casler, director of the J. V. Morsch Center, said, “This conference will be much more than the usual conference. Yes, it will provide information. Yes, it will equip participants with tools designed to help local churches put faith into action. But this event will also be an opportunity for life-changing dialogues, conversations with others who are working to solve social justice issues.”
Mobilizing the Church for Social Justice will be an opportunity for individuals, community leaders, and church leaders to learn to work together on issues that create social injustice—and learn how local churches and individuals can put faith into action.
