Waves of Justice

Answering God's call to transform the world in the Great Plains

Explore the steps your congregation can take to Make Waves of Change.

In the Waves of Justice framework developed by the team, we define justice ministry as:

  • Responding to God’s call to ensure the human rights and dignity of all, especially the most vulnerable
  • Using community power to solve social problems by transforming systems
  • Holding ourselves accountable for measurable change

Developing your vision and plan

Imagine this: your mission team, your Church Council, or another small group prayerfully considers the passions of your congregation. With your church context in mind, together you research and select a partner (an organization, coalition, or network) who can provide opportunities for action. You create a plan for how to invite your entire church to participate as opportunities arise to attend webinars and learning events, to call and email legislators, or to attend lobby days or rallies. You find ways to track your congregation’s participation along the way, so you can build momentum and celebrate each faithful step you take to answer God’s call to make a difference together. 

Here is a list of partners your church or your network might want to connect with. Look up their websites, check out their social media to see what they have been up to lately, and open yourself up to what amazing work of justice the Holy Spirit might have in mind for you.
