The Role of the Church in Doing Justice
Pepperdine's Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics will host, "The Role of the Church in Doing Justice," on Friday, February 19, at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. The conference is co-sponsored by the International Justice Mission and Advocates International.
"The Role of the Church in Doing Justice," will explore how Christians can answer the call to seek justice through churches, NGOs, and individual actions. Many churches and Christian organizations are finding creative ways to make a conscious effort to seek justice and be innovative with mission work, such defending human rights, offering legal aid to the poor, and providing a home for the oppressed. This conference will feature some of the leading Christian thinkers and practitioners who are developing this field.
Panels and presentations will discuss:
- The Biblical Foundations for Justice
- Mobilizing the Church to Seek Justice
- Seeking Justice Domestically
- Seeking Justice Globally
- Rich Stearns, President, World Vision U.S.
- Kay Warren, Saddleback Church
- Joseph D'Souza, International President, Dalit Freedom Network
