What is the National Faith an Justice Network?
  • The National Faith and Justice Network (NFJN) is a national alliance of regional groups dedicated to uniting Christians around Biblical Justice through spiritual formation, training, community organizing, and advocacy.
  • Functionally, NFJN offers affiliate local organizations the following:
  1. Excellent regional and national training events on Christ-rooted Community Organizing
  2. Periodic collaboration on national initiatives and campaigns
  3. Strategic partnership opportunities with national organizations and associations committed to Biblical Justice, including Sojourners and the Christian Community Development Association
  4. Regular conference calls and relationships to share best practices and lessons learned in local Christ-rooted community organizing
  5. Access to small group and church curricula to use in local organizing efforts

What current cities have a Faith and Justice Network?

Boston, New York, Oregon, Baltimore, and Cincinnati with others starting in Columbus, and hopefully your city!

Why are we required to come to
CONSPIRE! in teams?

The work of faith and justice is not a solo sport. Organizing requires developing and working in teams that share a common vision and purpose. This training is designed to help equip you to go back to your city and to either start a new network or plug into an existing one. In order to do that successfully we need you to come with at least three people from your area who you are committed to exploring working together.

What is Sojourners relationship to the Faith and Justice Networks?

While many of the local Faith and Justice Networks were inspired by Sojourners each of these groups are their own separate organizations with a distinct mission. Sojourners seeks to inspire and equip more groups to start and therefore is helping to sponsor this gathering.

  1. Once you have decided that you love paintball and that you are going to play with some regularity, a paintball marker package is the thing to get. The usual paintball marker packages that I've seen include the marker,spyder skia squeegee for cleaning, a barrel plug, a basic hopper and a CO2 tank. Along with that you get a mask and some pods. Some packages I've seen even include a harness. They will come with an Allen wrench set, some spare O-rings spyderas well as lubricant for the gun, but most guns I've seen come with this normally.This is quite a lot of stuff, and the package price you can get it for is really good. If you added up the cost of each item separately, it would be way more than you pay for the package. And you'll need all this stuff anyway. At a paintball field, you are going to have spyder jacketto rent all of this stuff separately, and they will charge you a nice chunk. The mask, for instance, is a separate charge.As paintball marker packages are geared towards beginners, they generally involve a beginner level marker. You commonly see the Spyder sold in a package, as well as

As you progress, you will want to upgrade your gun, and a Tippmann 98 is the perfect inexpensive marker to upgrade and customize. spyder jacketYou can customize this gun so much that you can make it better than many expensive markers.
