Our vision is to inspire and release every Christian student to pursue the biblical call to social justice.
We want every Christian student to have a passion for justice and to do something about it.
The world is full of injustice. More than 1 billion people live on less than £1 a day. There are an estimated 36 million victims of modern day slavery. Hundreds of people sleep rough in many of our university towns and cities in the UK.
Each one of those people is made in the image of God – who says that true worship is to loose the chains of injustice, that justice and righteousness are the foundations of His throne, that whatever we do for the least of our brothers and sisters, we do for Him.
We want to shift Christian student culture so that pursuing social justice is the norm.
Imagine the statement it would make at our universities if every Christian student was known for their radical, sacrificial love for those on the margins. Imagine the difference we would make to our cities and beyond if hundreds of Christian students were volunteering, campaigning, praying and fundraising. Imagine the impact we would have on the world if a generation of thousands graduated having been equipped to lead and envisioned to pursue Jesus and justice wherever they go, consuming ethically, giving generously, and transforming the industries in which they work.
We want to see this generation embark upon a lifelong pursuit of justice.
If the vision is the destination; where we are headed, the values are the way we journey. We’ve got four values which underpin all we do:
Living Like Christ– Rooted in scripture; empowered by prayer, we seek to be people who love Jesus more every day and embody grace, integrity and humility in everything we do.
Unity and Relationships – We want to make everyone who’s involved with Just Love feel extravagantly welcomed and encouraged. In particular, we seek to listen to, respect and love those we disagree with.
Student Ownership – We are obsessed with developing the next generation of Christian leaders, and want as many students as possible to feel a sense of ownership over Just Love. We do this by giving young leaders the freedom to develop- while ensuring they have support structures behind them.
Quality – This is not about perfectionism but it is about doing everything to the best of our abilities. We do things well to glorify God and honour those we work with and seek to serve.
