On January 22, 2011 students from Redeemer's Social Justice team will be hosting the 4th Annual Faith & Social Justice Conference. There, we will have the opportunity to address these issues from a Christian perspective, learn from experts in the field, and engage in a movement toward a just society.
Our plenary speaker will be Greg Paul who is the founder of Sanctuary Ministries in Toronto. A former carpenter, Greg has been involved in inner-city ministry for over twenty-five years. His passionate commitment to the people on the street grew out of his fascination with the city and a strong interest in the issues of the street. Greg has participated in the building of a community in which people who are wealthy and people who are poor live, work and share their experiences and resources on a daily basis. Greg has spoken and written extensively including God in the Alley: Being and Seeing Jesus in a Broken World and The Twenty Piece Shuffle: Why the Poor and the Rich Need Each Other. Registration is now closed.
