In the past few years Indianapolis has seen a number of creative new initiatives led by faithful people and their congregations that go beyond traditional forms of doing mission and outreach.  These projects are engaging youth and adults in making a difference for the common good in fresh ways that are transforming neighborhoods, reaching across the city to connect people and projects across dividing lines, and reaching across the world to transform lives for the better.  They include holistic redevelopment projects in depressed neighborhoods that include innovations in housing and education, addressing hunger more systematically and effectively in Central Indiana while at the same time improving health by reaching “food deserts,” and fostering the kinds of civic conversations that forge relationships and make constructive action possible.  The Petticrew Faith-in-Action program will feature a selection of the best of these initiatives, host a conversation with emerging leaders in Indianapolis about ways to foster more innovative work, and hear from David Johnson, CEO of Biocrossroads and the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, about the role business and civic leaders who are people of faith can play to “raise the game” with initiatives to improve the community.
