Justice. Freedom. God’s Mission.
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 is actively working to secure a block of rooms close to the First Baptist Church of Washington, D.C. Participants are free to secure their own lodging around the D.C. area. Once a block of rooms has been secured, this page will be updated with that lodging information.
