A Forum on Seeking the Peace of Our Cities

How is God calling you and your church to serve the poor? Are your engaging your head, heart, and handsDoes your church already have community partnerships, or do you run your own legal clinic or homeless outreach? Or maybe you're just beginning your compassion and justice journey.

HEAD  Come to the VJN 2017 FORUM to get the resources you need to both a deepernand broaden  your church's approach to "seeking the peace of your city"--whether you're from a small town of 5,000 or an urban center of 1 million.  

HEART   We want to do this first and foremost as Kingdom witnesses for the sake of our King Jesus. We want to demonstrate how our personal experience of God's mercy leads us to demonstrate God's justice, and this creates relationships where it may seem impossible and unjust systems and structures can be healed.  David Ruis and Vineyard Canada have been helping to shape the conversation with more of an eye towards the state of the “Vineyard-activist soul,” as well as the spiritual practices that leaders must cultivate in order to attend first to the leading and in-filling of the Holy Spirit, lest we commit injustices wherever we might want to sow peace.

HANDS  We'll highlight how we want to approach some key areas through the lens of Kingdom-formation and worship: community partnerships, refugee and immigration engagement, ending poverty, racial reconciliation, and tending creation.

  • If your church disappeared from your neighborhood tomorrow, would anyone in that neighborhood notice?
  • How can your church, small group, ministry, or church-plant to be more missional in identifying and developing community partnerships?
  • How can we move from client-provider relationships to more mutual, empowering relationships when serving vulnerable people like refugees, undocumented immigrants, and the formerly incarcerated? 
  • How do churches pursuing the Justice of the Kingdom be culturally relevant to the poor and marginalized communities in their own backyard? And serve alongside them?
  • How does caring for the environment cultivate the peace of our cities?
  • What does reconciliation (with God and with each other) look like in your neighborhood/town/city?

Why do we need a Vineyard Justice Network?

Vineyard Justice Network (VJN) does not exist to promote a singular 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 of structural, systemic injustice: human trafficking, 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, 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 with an "inside-out", rather than a "top-down" approach.

In particular, part of the leading edge of VJN points to the question: what does it look like and mean for the poor to lead the way in ending poverty? This can be reframed to: what does it look like and mean for the exploited to lead the way in ending exploitation, the trafficked to lead the way in ending trafficking, the homeless to lead the way to ending homelessness, the undocumented immigrant to lead the way in immigration reform?
