Finding Your Vocation for Social Justice

Social justice happens in many kinds of communities. A faith framework deepens the social justice mission whether the work happens in agencies, churches, or in the streets. Rev. Rebecca Turner is Pastor of Christ Church UCC in Maplewood, MO. With a diverse background serving three different denominations and interfaith non-profit justice work, she is deeply committed to the value of putting faith into action for the common good. She has sought to challenge herself and the Church to be living examples of the liberating story of Jesus. She believes we are not called to be good, but to be brave, and to impact the culture around us in ways that celebrate the God-Spirit in every member of humanity.

Rev. Turner is frequently featured as a keynote speaker, panelist, or guest preacher at seminaries, universities, conventions, workshops, and congregations. She has won multiple leadership awards, and she speaks on social justice topics ranging from white supremacy, immigration, reproductive justice, and more. This diverse experience has helped her to understand the intersectionality of all justice issues, and to believe that every human being has a role and an obligation to engage in actions that build a more just, sustainable world in which all people can thrive.

Come join a conversation with Rev. Turner about her experiences and how we can each find our role and our voice in faith-based justice work.
