Introducing the Vineyard Justice Network: a Pre-Dinner Meet-Up
Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 3:45 PM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
Do you already work to fight human trafficking, to end poverty, or engage with creation care? Come to network with like-minded Vineyard pastors and leaders, as well as learn about the mission and goals of the new Vineyard Justice Network (VJN).
No, we're are not promoting any particular ministry, nor are we trying to start a non-profit for Vineyard USA. Instead, we're focusing on bringing together our Vineyard church pastors and leaders who are already tackling one of the three targeted areas: HT, poverty, and the environment. VJN offers a new space to have conversations that either aren't happening, are happening in isolation, or are sporadic. Within our movement in particular, we so rarely even celebrate or highlight the significant justice work that is going on in our Vineyard churches. We recognize that it is essential for existing Vineyard pastors and leaders to shape the conversation in an "inside-out"/ incarnational approach, rather than a "top-down"/"authoritarian expert" approach.
Please join us for an encouraging and envisioning time together, with snacks and drinks.
