Capital Area Justice Ministry’s Processes for Building Power
To build power for justice, member congregations in the Capital Area Justice Ministry will engage and grow Justice Ministry Networks through three annual processes: Listening, Research-to-Action, and Investment Drive.
Process to Action
Listening Process (Fall 2021) – house meetings, teams assemblies
Research to Action (Fall 2021 – Spring 2022) – training, research meetings, teams assembly, rally, and Nehemiah Action
Investment Drive (Summer 2022) – training, corporate visits, celebration, teams assembly
Listening Process: Team members build and strengthen Justice Ministry Networks and identify community problems through house meetings and one-on-ones. Then Network members vote on priorities and elect officers at the House Meeting Assembly.
Research-to-Action: Leaders research and identify solutions to the problems chosen in the listening process, while strengthening and exercising their Networks to secure commitments from decision makers at our Nehemiah Action.
Investment Drive: Leaders build the movement’s self-sufficiency and members’ ownership by inviting Network members to invest in Capital Area Justice Ministry.
