What we do
Ethics & Justice
We seek to provide online resources on an array of ethical topics that point toward a Christ-centered approach to living. Issues we focus on include: Hunger & Poverty, Citizenship and Ethical Choices. We also feature an Ethical Living Blog. To learn more, please visit our Ethics & Justice pages or contact Ferrell Foster at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christian citizenship is a response to the call of God and the example of the ministry of Jesus Christ in the world. As caring Christians, we are called to reach out to the needs of the world with talents, spiritual gifts and compassion. Because of this, our Public Policy branch has provided information on public policy issues such as Criminal Justice, Alcohol & Addiction, Education and Gambling, so that the world we live in can reflect Biblical truth. To learn more, please visit our Public Policy pages or contact Kathryn Freeman at: email@example.com.
Our ministry impact focuses on issues we feel are highly important in today’s culture. Our three main focuses are on church law, hunger and poverty and immigration. To learn more, please visit our Ministry Impact pages or contact Bianca Barajas at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
