The Justice Conference- justice and liberty for all!
Some of you have probably read some of my posts recently about the End it Movement, and the Passion conference my son had the blessing of attending in Georgia. We have been addament about learning more about justice and the slavery that is still such a huge part of not only the world, but our country as well.
On the heals of the Month of National Human Trafficking awareness is the Justice Conference
held at Eastern University in Pennsylvania on Feb 22 & 23.
"With attendees from 44 states and over two dozen countries, come see why The Justice Conference has become one of the largest international biblical and social justice conferences and an annual pilgrimage for justice workers, students and learners from all over the world."
"Ken Wytsma founded The Justice Conference in 2010 with a group of like-minded friends in Bend, Oregon, who dreamed of impacting a generation for justice.
World Relief and Kilns College joined as the convening organizations and since then, The Justice Conference has grown to become one of the largest international gatherings on social and biblical justice. The vision of the conference is to reach tens of thousands of people over the next decade through an annual gathering that educates, inspires and connects a generation to a shared concern for the vulnerable and oppressed. This is motivated by the driving value of the conference, what Ken calls a theology of justice, that an understanding of God should compel love for others and engagement in justice.
The Justice Conference is a movement of students, teachers, business people, parents, artists, social entrepreneurs, pastors, advocates and academics all of whom are discovering the paradox that true life is found when we give our lives away on behalf of others."
An amazing array of speakers for an inspirational weekend! Justice and Liberty for all!!
