VJN 2017: SEEKING THE PEACE OF OUR CITIES

RACIAL RECONCILIATION | PRISON MINISTRY | IMMIGRATION | CREATION CARE | COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP

OCT 20-21 | YAKIMA VINEYARD, WA

REGISTRATION & DETAILS COMING SOON!


VJN is dedicated to showcasing the ongoing work of Vineyard

churches as they confront injustice, create solutions, and share their

struggles. In addition, we will profile voices from the front lines, news

stories, book reviews, and trainings to keep the VJN community on top of

current research and practice as we stay on hand for God’s Kingdom

justice being at hand in  the world.

VJN  brings together the wisdom of our shared experience in serving and standing in solidarity with the poor and the least-of-these. We offer holistic wisdom to all our churches, along with many easily-accessed resources for getting started and growing with a missional, Kingdom-centered approach.

Our network already spans Vineyard churches across 32 states, in every region. We’re also engaged with sister networks in Vineyard Canada, UK&Ireland, and Vineyard Nordic.

The VJN resource site – along with our VJN VUSA page – are connecting points for us to come together to learn more about the interconnectivity of injustice so that we can do the following:

  • train the people in our churches to think and respond strategically to the interconnectivity of human trafficking, poverty, and the environment
  • pray against injustice and intercede for the victims and survivors
  • empower and partner with those within our communities who are at-risk of being trafficked
  • care for survivors of human trafficking
  • learn how to make room for the poor to lead the way in fighting poverty
  • equip ourselves and our communities become effective stewards of the environment
  • develop strategic partnerships within our cities and states to maximize resources
