Why is OM concerned about a hard-to-measure concept like justice?
First, because God is serious about justice, and we want to reflect Him in all we do. Second, because there is so much injustice in our world, we must move from lamenting or ignoring it to winning it for one person at a time.
Advocating for justice is concerned with the deeper, often invisible forces in societies, not only their consequences. Behind child labour is a lack of systems for children’s rights, and women caught in sex work often have no alternatives for income.
Working for justice involves showing compassion to the oppressed and wronged in practical ways, like skills training or pursuing legal campaigns to raise awareness in the world and among God’s people.
You may have a deep compassion for those suffering injustice, legal training or other means of identifying and confronting underlying issues. You may have the ability to communicate the cause of justice. All these talents and more can be used to fight for justice, because everyone has the dignity of being made in God’s likeness.
It’s time to speak for those who cannot. What do you have to say?
Are you a people person? We are looking for a single or a couple who can offer both spiritual and personal encouragement to our team members.
The Year Program is a 12-month opportunity to support the growth of the Kingdom of God in Belgium and to grow personally and in faith while doing so.
Are you a gifted, passionate and experienced leader and fundraiser who can build local and international financial partners to support our ministry?
About 50% of the population in Africa is under the age of 15. If we want to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers, we will need to include children in our strategy.
