Start a Meet-Up

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead

The beauty, simplicity, and power of the local meet-up can not be overstated. This creative space allows a local body of Christians to raise justice values within their community and work out daily practical responses to God’s call for love and justice from His people. The meet-up is The Just Life’s primary method for serving the church in a way that builds a community of fellowship with a unified vision and disciplined commitment to Biblical justice that raises up advocates who work for individual and structural social change.

We have begun to create training resources designed to facility healthy and effective initiative development:

The Justice Continuum

1“The Justice Continuum” is a guide through the elements of commitment required for a holistic response to God’s heart for justice. This systematic approach is also useful for developing initiative teams and creating engagement strategies within local communities.

Initiative Development

2Think of the following as a sample worksheet. What justice issue do you feel God has called you to engage? The fist step is to simply begin – to put a flag in the ground and say “This is it. This is where I’ll stand. Who will stand with me?”

Social Capital Mapping

3“Social capital mapping” is simply a formal way of stating the importance listening to and learning from your community, being proactive about discovering and making connections, and building/developing community – door by door, family by family, name by name.

Building Blocks

4The technical, tactical, and practical of The Just Life ministry encompasses five interconnected “change agent” engagement strategies; each with their own part to play in a holistic vision for transformational justice ministry.
