For over a hundred years the church has had running debates as to which is more important, social justice or gospel proclamation. In this session John Scheepers briefly traced the importance of justice throughout the biblical story and called us to rediscover a cross centered justice movement at the heart of the gospel.
John Scheepers is the Director of Social Justice and Mercy Ministries at Hope City Presbyterian Church. He is a graduate of George Whitefield College and North West University. He is currently studying for a Masters in Missiology at the University of Stellenbosch with a focus on the church and inequality. Before joining Hope City John was involved in a number of church and parachurch ministries in a variety of contexts across Cape Town.
