Our purpose: Do Justice, Seek Peace, Build Community

The CPC Justice and Witness Ministry Team encourages the conference and local churches to engage in direct action as prophetic voices for justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.

Our Vision

  • Help local churches and their congregants identify and examine all facets of justice, peace and environmental issues affecting their communities, and facilitate a discernment of God’s call to act in response to these issues.
  • Offer the local churches and their congregants the information, resources, training, models and frameworks for direct action.
  • Raise awareness throughout the conference of issues, events and calls for action.
  • Lift up and celebrate the justice and peace activities and programs being carried out by the local church and its individual members.
  • Assist local churches and their congregants to understand that engaging in direct action is a way to grow and live their faith.
