Gaining Access to the Pond: Advocacy in Mission

Many Christians understand the need for development, but what do we do when we face unjust laws and policies? How do we engage these powers as Christians? This seminar draws on the experience of a community organizer and activist minister, including a new model called faith-rooted organizing and biblical public policy advocacy.
