Church Impact – From Organized Religion to Organizing Religion
Focus: Our churches could play a revolutionary role in addressing our world’s most pressing problems. We can lead the way in caring for the planet. We can address the needs of the poor. We can become agents of peace. And we can stand for the dignity of all people, beginning with the most vulnerable. In this eight-week intensive, we will help your congregation develop a vision and a plan for organizing your congregation to be a community of spiritual activists (aka disciples), engaging in good work for the common good, inspired by faith, hope, and love.
Project: Participants will focus on four primary topic areas (people, poverty, planet, peace) and design a two-year implementation plan for their congregation to become a sustainable catalyst for positive change.
