Justice. Freedom. God’s mission.

  • Explore advocacy as a faithful expression of Christian mission
  • Learn how to be an effective advocate – locally, nationally, and globally
    • Exercise our voice by interacting with members of Congress
    • Experientially engage an issue (e.g., poverty) through various media, daily reflection and prayer, and discover how transformation occurs
    • Develop individual and congregational capacity for leadership around advocacy
  • Interact with hands-on ministries among most-affected populations through CBF missions
  • Connect with a DC-area congregation to experience local church advocacy
