Why should Christians engage in advocacy work? Isn’t that getting too political? Learn why as Christians we are called to speak up for people that need our voices.
Advocacy is simply intercessory prayer in action. We pray for each other and for people in need. We ask the Holy Spirit to advocate for us and for each other. Advocacy takes this prayer practice a step further.
Fellowship Southwest advocacy is rooted in the same spirit and call that motivates our mission endeavors: to demonstrate the love of Christ by loving our most neglected and marginalized neighbors. As Christians dedicated to service, we often encounter situations and issues in need of a strong voice. Such encounters create passionate advocates in our churches and among those serving across the globe.
Fellowship Southwest advocacy is about encouraging, equipping and promoting the voice of advocates in our midst as they encounter need. In doing so, we strive to exercise responsible Christian citizenship by modeling a more effective, positive and inclusive public witness for the church.
The goal of Fellowship Southwest advocacy is to discover advocates already at work and to...
- Increase their effectiveness by offering strategic advice and counsel
- Connect them to one another in order to share experiences and best practices
- Connect them to experts — both individuals and trusted organizations
- Promote opportunities for effective and impactful advocacy among our churches and pastors
