Role: Workshop designer and facilitator, “Justice and the Church”

Audience: 60 nonprofit practitioners at the Micah Global Consultation, Manila, Philippines
Date: September 2018
The goal was for participants to 1) reconsider corruption as a complex phenomenon, encompassing many forms of misuse of power and breaches of public trust, 2) recognize that corruption might be embedded in our own cultural values and norms, 3) reflect on the “cultural captivity” of the church and exploring preventive strategies and safeguards to deal with corruption.
- What makes something an act of corruption?
- How normal are corrupt practices in your community? In your church?
- Scenario discussion: What would you do?
