Community organizing is a method by which churches collaborate and act to address issues of inequity and injustice in their communities by speaking truth to power. Although many churches already participate in such collective action, pastors often do not understand the biblical and theological basis for engaging their churches in this ministry. This two day-long seminar offers pastors and church leaders and opportunity to share their insights and develop a theological basis for this ministry.
- Learning the theological biblical basis for community organizing.
- Equipping the participants with tools in community organizing.
- Training the participants in how to bring their faith into action.
- Provide inspiration for sermons that move congregations from a personal faith to community activism.
