Faith in Active Civic Engagement (FACE)
FACE is a public speakers series sponsored by the Gordon IN Boston program. The focus of the GIB program is to offer leadership training and experiential pedagogies that explore the possibility of Sustainable Cities. This effort is applied to a variety of areas, including: religious, social, political, economic and agricultural sustainability.
The speakers series is organized as a public forum with the intention of bringing to the city of Boston experts capable of addressing a particular question in urban sustainability from a Christian perspective. Secondarily, the series will reflect on Gordon College’s presence in the city, and raise the profile of respectful conversation around particularly difficult discussions.
Gordon IN Boston, Second Church in Dorchester, the Emmanuel Gospel Center, and the Boston Project have partnered together to invite you to a brunch and conversation with Dr. John M. Perkins, co-founder and chairman of the Christian Community Development Association.
Dr. Perkin’s life and ministry is well known. In addition to co-founding the CCDA in 1989, he is also responsible for the creation of Mandenhall Ministries, Voice of Calvary Ministries, the Harambee Christian Family Center and school, Urban Family magazine and the John M. Perkins Foundation for Reconciliation and Development. He is an inspiration to thousands of like-minded followers who have replicated his Christian community development principles across the country and around the world.
