Christians for Social Action (CSA) is a group of scholar-activists, stirring the imagination for a fuller expression of Christian faithfulness and a more just society.

ESA is now Christians for Social Action.

Welcome to Christians for Social Action. While many evangelicals find a community in ESA, a growing number of people who are evangelical-adjacent or who identify as post-evangelical find resonance with our mission.  As language changes over time, we thought it was important to return to the basics. 

Christians for Social Action is building on the legacy of Ron Sider to energize every generation to participate in God’s work of justice around the world. Same people, same mission, new name.


Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Issues are big and complex.  Initiatives provide a starting point or additional challenge for people already involved. God invites us to participate in the work of shalom (peace with justice). These initiatives provide a starting point and resources for engaging with some of the world’s most challenging issues.
