Whitworth Ministry Summit

June 24 @ 7:00 pm - June 27 @ 8:00 pm

Our nation and our churches are broken and divided along ethno-racial lines. The church must be a credible witness to the reconciling power of the cross of Jesus Christ along all lines that divide. The objectives of this racial reconciliation track, led by Inés Velasquez-McBryde and Bobby Harrison, are four-fold:

  • To provide attendees with working definitions and shared language regarding systemic racism in our churches and institutions.
  • To provide a biblical basis for racial reconciliation and its centrality in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • To provide a sociological understanding of race as a social construct and its intersectionality in church, institutions and communities.
  • To equip followers of Jesus as peacemakers and agents of reconciliation and catalyze movements of reconciliation through the life of the local church and its surrounding communities.
