Kurt Ver Beek

Environmental, Spirituality

Kurt VerBeek has been working for more than two decades to promote justice in the Central American country of Honduras.  Seventeen years ago he helped found the Association for a More Just Society, a Christian organization committed to standing up for victims of violence, land-rights abuses, and government corruption in Honduras.  As a result of its fearless efforts in these areas, AJS is increasingly recognized by organizations around the world, such as Transparency International and the United Nations, as a pioneer in achieving justice for the poor. By sharing his and AJS's experiences, Kurt will challenge and inspire his listeners to discover where and how God is calling them, and the church, to fearlessly stand up to local and global injustices.
