I’m excited to announce that Jack Jezreel, founder and president of JustFaith Ministries, will be coming to the Diocese of Camden for a special presentation on Wednesday, November 13 at the Catholic Community of Christ Our Light in Cherry Hill.
The title of the talk is Saint Francis, Pope Francis, and a Vision for the 21st Century Parish. Today, the Feast of St. Francis, is the perfect day for this announcement! Here’s a flyer with event info:
I’ve been to dozens of talks on Catholic Social Teaching and our call to put our faith into action. I’ve never seen anyone as engaging and passionate as Jack Jezreel. If you’re interested in learning more about how we can become, in Pope Francis’ words, “a poor church for the poor,” you don’t want to miss this.
The event is free, but we will take a free-will offering to support the work of JustFaith.

On Thursday, November 14, Jack will lead a workshop for ministry professionals, covering the connection between faith formation and service and justice. Information below. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A bit about JustFaith and Jack:
JustFaith Ministries provides programs that transform people and expand their commitment to social ministry. Through these life-changing opportunities, members of a church or parish can study, explore and experience Christ’s call to care for the poor and vulnerable in a lively, challenging, multifaceted process in the context of a small faith community.
Jack Jezreel, M.Div., the founder and Executive Director of JustFaith Ministries, introduced the original JustFaith program in 1989 while working in a parish in Louisville, Kentucky. It was immediately and dramatically successful. Since then, churches around the country have had similar results.
Over 30,000 people have participated in various JustFaith programs in over 1,500 churches across the country. JustFaith Ministries, in conjunction with its partners, makes available introductory workshops, curriculum, resources, a website, and support services.
Jack serves as JustFaith’s Chief Executive Officer and is a member of the Board of Directors. He holds an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Religion from Furman University and a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Notre Dame. A popular national speaker, Jack previously spent six years in a Catholic Worker Community and twelve years in parish ministry.
