CENTRAL MIDLANDS JUSTICE MINISTRY

Background

The Central Midlands Justice Ministry is a growing network of faith-based congregations which are culturally, economically, racially, geographically and religiously diverse – coming together to fulfill our scriptural mandate to “do justice” and make the Central Midlands area a more just place to live for all people.The sponsoring committee is currently over thirty-five congregations, working together to build a strong Justice Ministry with the aim of empowering our community to act powerfully to address serious community wide problems through direct action. We will accomplish this by identifying a problem, doing research, educating the public, and publicly addressing the root causes of, and solutions to, poverty and injustice in our communities. The Central Midlands Justice Ministry is unique in its approach in that it transforms the systems that cause suffering by holding local officials accountable for resolving these inequities and injustices. We will officially begin our first justice cycle at our Community Problems Assembly and covenanting ceremony on November 13th, 2017.
