Justice and Mercy Ministry
The Justice and Mercy Ministry Team assists in the magnification and the multiplication of the gospel through Seattle to the ends of the earth by aiding in the defense of the defenseless both locally and globally.
The Justice and Mercy team operates on the core conviction that God draws near to the oppressed, the wounded, the widow, the orphan, and that by caring for the "least of these" we are able to join the Holy Spirit in His work of showing and sharing Jesus with a world in need of a savior.
The Justice and Mercy Ministry team seeks to address five distinct needs, both locally and globally:
1. Homelessness: Austin
2. Mercy/Orphan Care: Wes
3. International Justice: Casey
4. Local Justice: Cory

Cycles of Service
Due to the highly relational nature of this ministry, team members are asked to commit to a minimum of one year. At the end of the year-long service commitment, a team member may commit for another cycle, seek to join another ministry team, or take a type of sabbatical.
