Based on feedback from clergy and lay-leaders alike, this three-session program is one-of-a-kind and aimed at helping congregations identify their strengths and areas of growth, clearly define their congregations core grounding for justice work, develop a strong, well-grounded process for engaging in effective, congregationally-based justice ministry and establish ways to work toward Beloved Community through effective, values-based outreach that is accountable and in right-relationship.
