Website Administer Justice
Seek Justice. Find Freedom.
Mission: For over 20 years Administer Justice has stood in the gap to empower vulnerable neighbors with the help of a lawyer and the hope of God’s love through the home of the church. We exist to invite others to use their gifts to advance God’s kingdom of justice and righteousness. God’s heart beats for justice for the poor which is the second most prominent theme in the Bible. Because He cares, so do we. We demonstrate this by expanding access to Justice and Jesus. 1 in 3 Americans cannot afford an attorney. In a nation that pledges “liberty and justice for all”, that should not be. As Christ followers called to Administer true justice (Zechariah 7:9), that must not be. Together we can change that story.
Vision: Our vision is to see 1,000 Gospel Justice Centers transforming lives in the name of Christ. Transformation takes place as a trained team of volunteers establish neighborhood Gospel Justice Centers. Each Center is distinctly biblical, holistic, team-based, neighborhood centered, dignity giving, self-sustaining and leads back to the local church. The team provides legal, social, and spiritual support through a Justice Champion (team leader), Community Advocate, Hospitality Specialist, Prayer Champion, Client Intake Specialist, Interpreter, Attorney, Client Advocate and Follow-Up Advocate. Our logo demonstrates many diverse hands coming together to shine the light of the Holy Spirit into the darkness of injustice. We multiply impact through volunteers using their gifts to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).
Values: No one does justice alone. We believe that God is building a team at Administer Justice with people using their gifts to advance His kingdom through the pursuit of justice. We value everyone doing their P.A.R.T. (1 Corinthians 12:12) We are professional, adaptive, result-oriented, team-players. We live these values through our work knowing that we serve the Lord Jesus Christ. We embrace the truth that “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” Colossians 3:23. Our values drive us to measure and improve results. We perform with excellence because we know we will give an account. This drives us to work through three teams to engage, equip and ensure great outcomes. As a team we use a model called Traction to align our mission, vision, and values. We align ourselves around a common desire to get it, want it and have the capacity to do our role.

You and our Launch Specialists support, guide, and encourage Justice Champions as they work to bring their Gospel Justice Center from an idea to reality.

When barriers arise, you help the team find creative solutions to maintain their momentum and ensure their Grand Opening happens without significant delay.
