Topeka Jump (Justice and Unity Ministry Project) is one of Fellowship's respected local ministry partners that has our ongoing financial support. Topeka JUMP is a coalition of 28 congregations in Shawnee County pursuing systematic change through local policy and funding changes. Their Mission is to provide a powerful vehicle for marginalized groups in Shawnee County to fight for justice. They are committed to seeing "justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream " (Amos 5:24). .
Once a year in the Fall, each JUMP congregation hosts small house meetings across Shawnee County in which people talk about the problems they experience in their day to day lives and in the broader community. JUMP members vote on what justice issues they feel led to take on and advocate for on behalf of our community. A committee for each initiative does numerous research visits during the winter with experts in those areas, searching for best practices for our community.
Current justice issues:
- Predatory Lending
- Public Transportation
- Safe and Affordable Housing
- Mental Health/Addiction
You have an opportunity to see the overview and fruit of this process on Wednesday, February 24th, 6:30-8pm when our active Fellowship Network Members meet online to review all the initiatives and their current status, and to prepare for the upcoming Nehemiah Action (based on Nehemiah chap 5) when representatives from all 28 congregations hear our public officials commit to champion specific best practices that JUMP is advocating.
If you have questions and/or would like to view this online meeting to see up close what Topeka JUMP is all about, please contact one of our Fellowship JUMP Team Leaders: Angie Stewart at
