Preparing a Seminar Group

The preparations you do with your group will vary depending on your individual needs and goals, but we have provided some resources to help shape discussions and meetings you might want to have before taking the trip. Using a resource such as a film, book, or Bible study is often an effective way to get everyone in your group thinking and discussing, as they respond to a shared experience.

Film List: Movies entertain and engage us in ways that other media do not. They capture our attention and encourage us to become part of the story – live the experience of those on screen. Seminar Program participants, GBCS staff and colleagues working with other justice organizations have recommended these social justice films. If you have movies or documentaries that you would like to share with others, please send them to us to add to this list.

Bible Studies are also a good way to encourage your group to intentionally explore their topic from a faith perspective.
