Social Justice Week Re-cap - Share your story with us!

Praise God for the amazing ways He was working through our campus during Social Justice Week! It was exciting to see us come together to engage the campus through conversations, chain gangs, and proxe stations to raise awareness about modern day slavery and God's mission to restore the earth in full shalom.

At Love Out Loud, our Friday night event,we got to see at least 222 people attend - that's one of the biggest IV events we've had on this campus! God worked through the performers, the speakers were informative and challenging, and the gospel was proclaimed.

We're sure that YOU have tons of stories to share! Leave comment below to tell us about the conversations you've had, the people you've encountered, the things you've witnessed, or the ways God has changed you through this eye-opening experience.

And enjoy just a few snapshots and videos of the events below!

HI Intervaristy, so, I wanna share something small that actually happened after the social justice week, but still related. So I think it was on Wednesday when I went to prayer meeting, Jon Yee asked to pray about what was accomplished during SJW and whatnot. I actually set my mind to pray for victims and perpetrators around the world who are still living in slavery. Sounds pretty big and hard, but I wanted to try and believe that God could hear my prayer. I prayed for the victims, for hope, for change, and for the perpetrators (pimps, customers, owners) that their soul could be awakened by the grace of God and therefore can recognize the real value of a person, to see how God called us to relate and treat one another, and how in this regard slavery becomes a sin. I hope to pray like that more!
