Evangelism or Social Justice?

Sorry I have not been writing lately. I have been up to so many things on campus reaching Greeks (fraternity & sorority) students with the gospel. One of the tensions I am wrestling with as an evangelist and ministry leader is how does evangelism and social justice go together? For so many of us it becomes an “either or” and that is not good enough.

Here is how I am embracing the tension in my neck of the woods.

Row To Row

In our effort to do both great evangelism and pursue social justice, we believe God spoke to us the idea of “Row to Row”. There are two very distinct “Rows” in Los Angeles and they are only miles apart – Greek Row (which is extremely privileged) and Skid Row (which is the largest concentrated place of homelessness in America). We believe God was calling us to be the match maker and to get these two communities knowing each other and working together for transformation in both directions. (Read more)

The USC students have embraced this challenge and have been serving down at the Union Rescue Mission every Friday afternoon. Just this last Saturday they put on an awesome Christmas party for the families.

Row To Row is about connecting people of great privilege (Greek Row) with those of little privilege (Skid Row) so real and transformative relationships can develop.
