Cultivating a faithful public witnessat the corner of missions and advocacy
March 9-12, 2020
Advocacy in Action is a four-day opportunity to put your faith to action while impacting the most pressing issues of the day. Explore advocacy as a faithful expression of Christian mission, develop a biblical basis for advocacy and learn how to be an effective advocate — locally, nationally and globally.
In 2020, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is bringing Advocacy in Action back to Washington, D.C. The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington, D.C. will serve as a host for our time. Planned agenda items include a special tour of the Smithsonian Museum for African American History and Culture, an evening tour of the U.S. Capitol, lobby visits on Capitol Hill and visits with CBF Partners such as the Baptist Joint Committee. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from other faith-based advocates and folks in the religious journalism sector.
The cost for the conference is $100. CBF has secured two blocks of rooms. The first is within 0.5 miles of the church. It is the Madera Hotel. Rooms are $219 a night plus tax. The second is the Holiday Inn in Silver Spring. Rooms are $155 a night plus tax. For either option, please contact Sabine Graf (CBF Travel Agent) at 770-312-2577 or 866-291-7809.
