Every person is made in the image of God to flourish, work, rule, and create and followers of Jesus are to be ministers of reconciliation in this world. If you are a leader and want to grow in your ability to cast vision, love well, and engage issues like racism, sexuality, climate change and human trafficking with Jesus at the center - then RecWeek is the program for you.
New York City and Long Island will be our world-class classrooms as we study scripture, pray fervently, and respond actively to the commandment to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and love our neighbors as ourselves. Learn and practice our foundations of Emotionally Healthy Activism and grasp our 4 P's of Prayerful Resistance and Practical Repentance and seek God's personal, relational and systemic justice in a world filled with so much individual and collective brokenness.
Every student and staff that attends RecWeek must register.
