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. From global poverty and modern day slavery, to local homelessness and food poverty. We believe that God calls everybody to love their neighbours, steward this earth and loose the chains of injustice. We exist to inspire every Christian student to pursue this biblical call.
We want to shift Christian student culture so that pursuing social justice is the norm.
We want to marry thoughts and words with deeds and actions. 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 released into volunteering, campaigning, praying and fundraising.
We want to see this generation embark upon a lifelong pursuit of justice.
Justice is not a short-term trend. We believe it is a lifelong calling. We seek to equip students to pursue justice beyond university, in their communities, relationships and careers. 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.
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
Jesus is at the centre of all that we do. All that we do is motivated by the grace of God given to us in Jesus, and a response to the mission of God. Jesus’ life and teaching, death and resurrection set the pattern for all that we do and the way that we do it.
Biblical justice is all about right relationships between God, humanity and creation. Therefore, we seek justice in a relational way; partnering with other organisations and getting to know the people within them. As students and alumni, we build lifelong relationships in which people are known, challenged and loved.
We believe that everyone is a leader with the potential to influence and serve people around them. We don’t want to be an organisation that is run by just a few people at the top; we want to be a movement where everyone is released and encouraged in their gifts. We love giving opportunities for people to lead and seeing them grow as a result.
We work with people who God deeply loves. That is an incredible gift and we have a responsibility to steward it well. Therefore, we do all that we do to the best of our ability – both the execution of immediate tasks and the planning of long-term strategy. We work within our limits, grounded in the grace that liberates us from legalism and perfectionism, to serve others and glorify God.
