“It depends on your pastor’s personality,” says Mike Hogan, the Northwest Director of Church Mobilization for International Justice Mission. Higher ego pastors will probably need to be influenced by people with a high degree of credibility, like a speaker at a high-level conference or an influential leader. “Find a tool, a bridge for who your pastor is. Maybe it’s a book. Maybe it’s inviting him to a conference.” Many pastors are passionate about prayer or evangelism or community; find a way to introduce ideas of justice through his or her passion. “Don’t give up.”
