Join the Revolution

We are progressive thinkers, dreamers, innovators, organizers, and leaders, sometimes well received and sometimes apostate, who all share a passion for honesty, inclusion, and justice inside and outside the Church. We dream of a world filled with peace, economic equality, and freedom from the yoke of oppression for ALL people. And when we say ALL we mean ALL. More than anything, we dream of a world filled with love. 

As we see institutional churches falter, we believe it is time for new dreams, new connections, and new leaders. Fig Tree Revolution exists to connect leaders in local churches and communities who have innovative dreams to prophetically speak to injustice in all of society and to mobilize local churches and communities to work together to achieve concrete change alongside those directly impacted by injustice. Wanna change the world? Then join us!

When prosecutor and devout Christian Preston Shipp began teaching in a Nashville prison, he never thought he'd be the one to get schooled. But the friendship he forges with one young prisoner puts his faith in the justice system and in Jesus to the ultimate test. 

When just 16-years-old, Jasmine was forced to fend for herself when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) targeted her undocumented parents. Going to high school during the day and working at night, she couldn't make ends meet and suffered extreme poverty and oppressive loneliness. This is when the church stepped in.
