Faith by itself if it does not have works,
is dead. James 2: 17
We hope this resource has encouraged you by the breadth of the work Christ’s body is doing. More needs to be done but huge progress is being made. EP2030 is passionate about equipping and uniting the church to be more radically engaged with God’s Global Goals.
We would love your involvement! It may feel overwhelming knowing where to start with 17 ambitious goals but as Max Lucado says ‘Poverty is not the lack of charity but the lack of justice…no one can do everything, but everyone can do something.’ Here are some ways you can respond:
JOIN EP2030 – If you’re passionate about finding out more about EP2030, come and join other Christians in this movement by signing up at
www.endpoverty2030.com. This site will be packed with information, ways to respond, with regular updates. You could even become an EP2030 ambassador and inspire your church or parish with some of our resources.
PRAY – Whilst the calls to action in this resource are generally practical, we are avid believers in the power of prayer. Can extreme poverty be ended? We believe so, but only when the church is mobilised to pray passionately. Could you commit to becoming an EP2030 Prayer Partner?
LIVE – As you’ll have seen in this resource, the fulfilment of the SDGs requires everyone’s support from Governments to local churches. Some Christian campaigns in the past have been criticised for only lobbying Governments to tackle the major social issues of our time, whilst not committing to increasing our own efforts. EP2030 is committed to lobbying…but…we also believe that we can do much more. Our consumer and lifestyle choices, church management choices etc. all make an impact. What changes can you and your church start making today?
GIVE – Of course, giving is always required, as both individuals and churches assess their budgets and priorities. Much sacrifice is already being made, but there is so much more we could do, and give to make an extraordinary impact for the sake of the Kingdom. This resource is full of amazing Christian NGOs. Why not commit to one Goal today and get behind their 2030 agenda.
