Beginning in 2013, we began to focus our mission efforts on justice, poverty, oppression, and women: JPOW. Through events like the Girl Rising film screening, Summer Institute, Summer Reading Groups, and our Global Church Conference, we’ve had the opportunity to learn about the oppression of women and to examine how God might be calling us to act as people of faith. Join us as we move from education to engagement through service.
