About the Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee strives to offer opportunities for the congregation to share Jesus’ love and his call to seek justice by reaching out to make changes in public policies that impact the lives of all God’s people. In keeping with this mission, this subcommittee of the Mission Committee offers opportunities to put faith into action.

The Advocacy Committee also provides educational seminars through the Academy for Faith and Life. For more information about the current issues supported by the Fourth Church Mission Committee, contact Nancy Davis (312.274.3815).
