JustFaith Introductory Workshop
The Gospel invites us to a journey of personal transformation that yields a deep commitment to all our sisters and brothers, including and especially those in the wounded places. Jesus’ proclamation of a life-changing compassion brings new life to those who hear and respond, and new life to the world they touch.
Join us at this workshop where Jack Jezreel, creator of JustFaith, nationally celebrated speaker, and author of the book, A New Way to Be Church, speaks to the vision of God’s healing presence in the world and offers a tool called JustFaith for churches who want to deepen and expand the work of social transformation.
Jack Jezreel is the founder of JustFaith Ministries, holds a B.A. in Religion from Furman University and a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Notre Dame and has received numerous awards for his innovative work and teaching style.
There is no fee but registration is required to reserve a seat. We encourage churches to send 5 members or more.
