Youth Ministry:Fair Trade


Do you believe that people in developing nations are no different than we are in that they desire dignity, the opportunity to work, provide for their families, and invest in their communities. They are different in that they face significant challenges socially, economically, geographically, and politically that make it impossible for them to break the cycle of poverty without strategic and respectful support and intervention.

As a youth ministry leader, you should be involved personally in fair trade but also infecting change within the youth ministry that God has blessed you to lead.

  1. great thought.

    Once churches (and their youth ministries) as a whole move toward fair trade (and environmental sustainability) we’ll see individuals within those churches begin to understand that larger social injustices are just as much the business of the church as personal issues.
