Justice Advocacy Compassion [JAC]

At Metro, we believe that a critical component to our spiritual formation is responding to the needs of the hurting. There are over 2,100 verses in the Bible where God calls His people to fight for the justice, be an advocate, and have compassion for the poor and oppressed. JAC helps the people at Metro to do just that. We do not do this out of a sense of noble obligation, but we do it out of a sense of reverence for Jesus Christ. In Matthew 25:40, He teaches us that whatever we do to the “least of these” we are “doing” unto him. Jesus Christ is among the least, the last, and the lost. When we at Metro visit the poor, oppressed and the marginalized, we go with the posture and expectation of encountering Jesus Himself.

Our Vision

MEET JESUS: In Matthew 24:40, Jesus says “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters, you did for me.” These words are the core of JAC. When we serve the least, the last and the lost, we are serving Jesus Himself.

Our Values

REACH: We want to reach out to the poor, the suffering and the marginalized in Englewood and beyond.
RELATE: We want to live out what it means to love our neighbor and to build relationships with those we serve.
RESTORE: We want to help restore and heal those we serve by being reflections of Christ.
JAC isn’t a ministry of Metro. It is the heart and soul of Metro. It is how we connect to our community. It is how our community connects to us. It is how we all connect to God.
