"And what does the lord require of you? To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly before your God."

- Micah 6.8

Our vision is to inspire and release every Christian student to pursue the biblical call to social justice.


Since we love talking about our vision and how it shapes everything we do, here’s an explanation of what we mean by inspiring and releasing every Christian student to pursue the biblical call to social justice.

To inspire and release…

Inspiring and releasing describe the kind of movement that we want to catalyse. We want to inspire those who are not particularly confident about the place of justice within the Christian faith to move towards a place where they have a real heart for social justice, rooted in a fuller understanding of the character and commandments of our God.

And for those who already see social action as an integral part of the mission of the church, we aim to release them – to encourage, equip and empower them to pursue the passions that God has given them.

…every Christian student…

Our Christian faith is not merely a sprinkle that we put on top of what we do – it is at the very heart of what we do. Our faith determines the motivation, the manner and the end-goal of our pursuit of social justice.

We recognise that when it comes to tackling specific areas of injustice, although we seek to be as strategic and effective as possible, there are other organisations that carry more expertise and experience. However, we focus on students so that we are perfectly placed to bring about a culture shift within the Christian student world. Our focus is on inspiring and releasing every Christian student because we believe that social justice is a fundamental part of the Christian faith, not an optional extra.

…to pursue the biblical call to social justice.

Pursuit implies movement. We are a movement of hundreds of students and we are heading in a shared direction: towards the kind of social justice that that bible tells us to seek.

So that’s the vision; it's where we are heading. But it’s also worth thinking about how we are going to get there. For that we have our four core values. If the vision is the destination, then the values describe the manner in which we want to journey. So here they are:

Living Like Christ


This is first for a reason. In particular this value encompasses the centrality of scripture and prayer in all that we do as Just Love. Living Like Christ means displaying grace, integrity and humility in all that we do. We don't live like Christ by our own strength but through God working in us. 

Unity and Relationships


We want to make every person involved with Just Love feel extravagantly welcomed, loved and encouraged – and we want to be willing to listen to those we disagree with, to respect their views, and to love them.


Student Ownership


We are obsessed with developing the next generation of Christian leaders, and that can only happen if we give young leaders the freedom to develop. We are committed to putting the support structures in place to enable students involved in Just Love to fulfil their potential and we want as many students as possible to feel a sense of ownership over Just Love.

Quality 


This is not about perfectionism, but it is about glorifying God by doing everything we do to the best of our abilities. Quality shows that we care for and respect those whom we work with and those whom we are seeking to serve.
