“For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.” Psalm 11:7
…If the students in your ministry developed a fuller understanding of God.
…If conversations about justice introduced seekers to the God of Justice.
…If a generation of leaders were developed, whose witness to the world would shape justice for years to come.
Whether you work on the university campus or you are a student, you have been given a remarkable platform to engage university students—and the entire campus—about the reality of violence and God’s heart for justice.
Today’s college students are passionate about social issues, especially areas of injustice around the world. Conversations about justice engage students through a common desire to end modern-day slavery. As students explore their commitment for justice, they are invited to consider God’s heart for the vulnerable.
Justice reflects the heart of God and his commands to his followers. Inviting students to respond to injustice and oppression in your community and around the world challenges them to live the principles expressed in Micah 6:8, “What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Our goal, along with the Cru & IJM Justice Team, is to provide biblically-based resources that complement the work you’re already doing on the university campus: to help students understand God’s love for the oppressed, to actively speak out about issues that matter to God, and to walk with Him for a lifetime.
“My heart was revived after hearing Libby’s talk on justice.”
- John Waidley, Cru City Director
“Doing Soularium cards with a focus on justice led to the best day of ministry
