GET PROXIMATE (VINEYARD JUSTICE NETWORK)


NOVEMBER 14th - 16th | BLUE ROUTE VINEYARD | PHILLY, PA

In Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson shares how his struggle for justice and ability to understand the complexity of mass incarceration is rooted in “getting proximate” to the people whose lives are most affected by the issues at hand.

WHAT DOES GOD SAY AND WHAT WOULD HE HAVE US DO?

As faith leaders, how can we best develop a Kingdom-life centered approach to the myriad of hot-button issues in our time by “getting proximate”? It’s more challenging than ever to not have a knee-jerk response to hot-button issues like immigration, abortion, racism, and mass incarceration, to name a few! Oftentimes, we, the church, can shy away from such topics and are criticized for avoiding them.

Instead, VJN wants to create a mutually respectful space to study, discuss and debate some of these key issues, and get proximate to the very people they are affecting. Join us for an immersive, learning community experience.

Earlybird rates through August 31, $85 / $65 for students!
