Political Discipleship is a praxis-based curriculum from the Center for Public Justice created for small groups that provides a practical approach to Christian citizenship and engagement with public justice. It is designed to help small groups explore faithful, Christian citizenship by practicing citizenship together. Political Discipleship meets for 11 sessions, culminating in a face-to-face meeting with a public official.
At the Center for Public Justice we
- Are committed to public service that responds to God’s call to do justice in local, national, and international affairs.
- Believe Christians should contribute to the renewal of political life.
- Encourage officeholders and citizens to take their responsibilities seriously.
- Pursue a multi-issue, public-interest approach to lawmaking and governance.
- Envision a republic where government is competent, leaders are trustworthy, and civil society is thriving.
The Center for Public Justice is an independent, nonpartisan organization devoted to policy research and civic education. Working outside the familiar categories of right and left, conservative and liberal, we seek to help citizens and public officeholders respond to God’s call to do justice.
Our mission is to equip citizens, develop leaders, and shape policy in pursuit of our purpose to serve God, advance justice, and transform public life. The Center bases its research, publications, training, and advocacy work on a comprehensive, Christian political foundation. It was established in 1977 by a group of citizens interested in developing and communicating an integrated biblical view of political service and responsible government. Then, as now, the Center recognized the need to build and uphold a just republic and to promote just relations among the nations.
