Breaking the Cycle of Incarceration in Your COMMUNITY:
A Holistic Approach to RESTORING…
…Hearts, Minds and Lives.
// Movement Day 2013 Track \\
>> FOCUSES on Helping People Affected By Crime <<
Crime is nothing new. In fact, it’s as old as life itself, especially in urban areas. Confronted with the soaring cost of crime and the high toll incarceration takes on individuals, families, victims and the economy – cities need help. Working toward building safer communities we envision a finely-tuned collaboration of churches, organizations and public policy advocates, working collectively and proactively through educational programs to change hearts and the culture, to restore the community.
We expect to deepen existing relationships and form new, creative partnerships – so together – we can help meet the accumulating needs faced by the individual prisoner, ex-prisoners, their families, victims, and the communities in which they live. We want to see broken lives restored resulting in healthy families and safer communities (see Isaiah 32:18).
By strategically joining forces with others, we expect to be a catalyst for change. With sensible collaboration between a diversity of organizations working within their own expertise, we can develop new ways to address the ongoing problems of individuals and their communities impacted by incarceration. By offering caring ministry, biblical counseling, quality mentoring, and advocating for public policy changes based on a biblical worldview, we hope to shift the focus from urban problems to effective solutions.
This Track is for:
- Leaders, public policy makers, educators, and church/community members interested in learning how their organizations can creatively work collaboratively to influence the culture and bring hope and healing to people affected by crime.
