About Me: 

I served World Renew in various capacities from agronomsit in Bangladesh to Executive Director-US. Currently I am providing consultation to the CRCNA, helping implement the decision of Synod 2015 that strengthened the role of deacons in the CRC and also has them now seated at Classes and Synod. I am also involved in the work of racial reconciliation at Madison Square Church in Grand Rapids. My passion is to see the church carry out more effectively Christ's call to be agents of transformation in a hurting world.

The Call on Deacons to Be Prophetic Critics Of Injustice

One of the mandates in the oath of office for deacons is "Be prophetic critics of the waste, injustice, and selfishness in our society, and be sensitive counselors to the victims of such evils." How has your church or diaconate lived into this mandate? In a time when issues can get quickly politicized good models are needed. Please share your story.
