An online publication written by and for millennials exploring the intersection of faith and politics.
An Initiative of the center for public justice
While our churches are often well-versed in our role as “the hands and feet” ministry to the poor, our call to distinctive Christian citizenship requires that we love our neighbors by looking to the well-being of our political communities.

The faith-based initiative would be an essential component in catalyzing President Trump’s stated goals of revitalizing communities and making government more cost-effective and less burdensome on civil society.
Christian citizenship strives for stewardship rather than self-interest, wisdom rather than self-flattery, and responsibility rather than passivity.
