Vineyard School of Justice (Oct 2013-April 2014)
What if you could be part of a school which equipped you with the knowledge, skills, and character to live a life of love and worship, and gave you the opportunity to learn these things sitting side by side with those who are marginalized?
The Vineyard School of Justice is a unique seven month program run by the Winnipeg Centre Vineyard and held at our premises in Winnipeg’s North End (one of Canada’s most impoverished neighbourhoods). The school is designed to foster a passion for following Jesus as he leads us outwards by creating an environment where we learn together and build relationship with those on the margins, all the while living as neighbours in the same neighbourhood.
The school will feature teaching and discussion (on topics such as: God’s Heart for Justice; the Person, Power, and Gifts of the Holy Spirit; Addictions and Life on the Streets; Gangs, Prostitution, and Mental Health Issues; Healing and the Kingdom of God; Aboriginal studies; A Theology of Nonviolence and Studies in Conflict Resolution; Mercy and Compassion; Justice and the Arts etc.), hands-on justice and ministry activities as well as practical volunteer opportunities in the neighbourhood, worship and prayer ministry, and personal mentoring and discipleship. We will also travel to Nepal to learn from our sister Vineyard churches in the Himalayan Region who do ministry with some of the most marginalized people in Nepal.
Follow Jesus. Be in the margins. Apply today!
