School of Communication and Advocacy
- Date: 8 July 2013
- Venue: Perth, Australia
As God’s people, we have the best message and it deserves to be communicated in the best possible way – whether across a table or across a nation. The School of Communication and Advocacy is designed to help us get more of God’s heart for areas of injustice and for communicating His message. It will equip students with practical communication skills to do this, such as public speaking, writing, and research, using the media to create effective tools, interpersonal and intrapersonal communication and more.
The school will have a focus on advocacy and how our communication can be a powerful tool for transformation and change. It will have input from local base ministries related to advocacy, such as our Human Trafficking ministry called Priceless.
We will also draw in local people who work in areas such as radio, law enforcement and government to talk about how our communication would best serve in these areas. It will also fulfil the core course outcomes for those pursuing a U of N degree.
We will also be offering a 8-10 week outreach focusing on human trafficking, and hopefully initiating a 5 year project with the school in a particular country.
I would love you to come and join us for the next school, starting July 7th, 2013!
Call2Compassion and Justice
- Date: 5 November 2013
- Venue: Mumbai, India
Call2Compassion and Justice is a five-day conference in Mumbai from 4-8 November 2013, which has at its core the connection between the Great Commission and the Great Command to love one another that is at the heart of compassion and the pursuit of justice.
Mumbai is a city where world-class ministries are doing transformative work among the poor: with slum dwellers, people who have been trafficked, those in prison, those living with HIV/AIDs, and with children at risk. The Global Compassion Network and the Social Stream of the Mumbai Transformation Network, invite all those working with churches and ministries engaged with compassion ministry, those feeling the God's call to begin such work, and those already connected to the Global Compassion and Call2All networks to join us in Mumbai to experience and to learn from what God is doing in this city.
Call2Compassion & Justice will equip churches and ministries for compassion ministry by sharing and learning from and experiences of the transformational ministries already active in Mumbai, building upon them with response and discussion led by speakers from India and from global networks and organizations involved with Global Compassion and the Call2All Network.
Plenary sessions will share God’s heart for compassion and justice, and focus on key ministry areas such as human trafficking, community development, children at risk, and HIV/AIDs. These will be followed by breakout workshops that will focus on key topics that are critically important in working in these areas. The delegate rate also covers the cost of visiting the various projects of Mumbai’s ministries in small groups to experience their work in a truly tangible way.
We believe that this will allow delegates and speakers to share their hearts, experiences and ministries with others, inspiring and enabling participants to take new ideas, models and skills away with them to develop and bear fruit in their own contexts, and to follow the call of Isaiah: “To loose the chains of injustice and to untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke. Is it not to share your food with the hungry and provide the poor wanderer with shelter, when you see the naked to clothe him and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” (Isaiah 58:6-7 NIV)
