Justice Ministries

Congregationally-based JUSTICE MINISTRIES are the embodied ways congregations address systemic barriers to right-relationship. These ministries are strongest when they are

  • rooted in faith
  • informed by our theologies
  • infused with love, and 
  • chosen collectively by the congregation.

Whether, the focus of the engagement is within or beyond the congregation, JUSTICE MINISTRIES are about repairing brokenness in our relationships both within and beyond our congregations.


Our vision of justice is rooted in Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s radical statement:

"Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. And justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love."

The focus of justice making may be on upholding civil and human rights, but its goal is always the co-creation of the Beloved Community. HOW we do the work with each other and our partners is as important as WHY.

In Beloved Community, we are each able to bring our best selves in service to the community while the community actively supports each of us to do that. Thus, there is always reciprocity between the individual and the community. "I am here for the community and the community is here for me." Each exists to support the other to blossom.
