Join the Center for Christian Civics and Christians for Social Action for a live look at how the Christian faith can equip us to make government healthier at the national (and international!) level.

The evening will feature a presentation on the work Christian Civics and CSA are doing together, an invitation to partner in our work, and an exclusive talk from economist Nishan de Mel of Verite Research on the fruit that gets produced when we leave behind culture war thinking and start loving God with all our mind in the public square.

About the Speaker

Shaped and convicted by his Christian faith, Nishan de Mel has implemented a first-of-its-kind approach to government debt. Working with lenders, bondholders and the Sri Lankan government, Nishan and his team created a solution that incentivizes both the government and the lenders to fight corruption and increase government transparency. You can read more about it in the Financial Times (paywalled), Yahoo! Finance, and PublicFinance.lk.

About the Center for Christian Civics

CSA is excited to be working with our friends at the Center for Christian Civics to provide you with resources for faithful political engagement this election year. If you are having a hard time relating to people who share your faith but not your politics, or if you long for a way to connect your faith to your civic life that actually makes Jesus look good to your neighbors, we’re here to help!

Since 2015, the Center for Christian Civics has equipped Christians across the political spectrum to think, speak and act differently in a bitterly divided public square. Marked by a patient, empathetic approach to civic discipleship, their programming has been an invaluable resource to ministry leaders, political professionals and anyone trying to connect their faith to their civic life in a way that transcends the “us/them” culture war.
