Our news is littered with issues of inequity, oppression, and outright moral offences. While justice and mission may seem like the latest hot topics, they have been the guiding characteristics of Protestant Christians for the last two hundred years. Since William Carey started the modern missions movement in 1792, believers have rallied to the call to go and make disciples (missions) and to teach them to obey (which leads to justice).
If you find yourself drawn to ministry working with particularly vulnerable communities, Denver Seminary is the place to think through difficult issues with practical instruction. The Justice and Mission faculty are active practitioners; many are CEO’s of non-profits across Denver. Your education will be shaped by both the rigorous academics in the classroom and the opportunities to discuss real world situations in your own ministry or as you intern with them out of the classroom.
Human trafficking, racial reconciliation, immigration, and poverty, etc.—regardless of the people group the Lord has called you to work with, Denver Seminary has a variety of academic paths within Justice and Mission to support what you aspire to do.
