required for minor

Practice social justice wherever God sends you. We are all made in God's image and you have the opportunity to serve others and be a voice for justice in your local community and around the world.

We seek to equip students with the knowledge and conviction to promote Christian social justice wherever God places them. As a Christian institution, we take seriously the biblical directive to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8). We also recognize that the Good News that Jesus Christ offers is to be both proclaimed and demonstrated to those around us so that God can be glorified in both our spoken word and relational action. As followers of Jesus, we recognize that he calls us to pursue reconciliation and compassionate action in this world while hoping for that future day when complete reconciliation and wholeness will be enjoyed for all eternity in heaven.
