To promote and facilitate ministries of justice and advocacy.
Vision of the Outreach Advocacy Ministry Team
Local congregations in Holston Conference are actively engaged in Christian witness through ministries of justice and advocacy for all God’s children and creation.
The primary work of advocacy in Holston Conference occurs through the Outreach Advocacy Ministry Team and its various components. Areas addressed by this team include advocacy for health care for all, advocacy for the people of Sudan, advocacy for issues related to mental health, as well as work in Peace with Justice, Religion and Race, and Safe Sanctuaries, a program developed to protect our children and youth.
Some grant monies are available for local churches working in the areas of advocacy. These grants include Change for Children, Handicap Accessibility, and Peace with Justice.
