Session A - Wednesday, Nov 9 (10:45a)
Engaging White Evangelicals on Race • Josh Clemons & Dan Crain
In this workshop, Josh and Dan will share the why, how, and what of the "Know, Own, & Change the Story" model. The model presents a framework for Gospel-centered reconciliation and discussion in your church or organization via truthful, Christ-honoring dialogue with others concerning age-old concerns of whiteness in Evangelicalism.
Session B - Wednesday, Nov 9 (1:30p)
Is it Worth the Fight? • Kristin Mockler Young
It’s no secret: deconstruction is fashionable, cynicism abounds, criticism is personal, attendance is low, giving is down and on the whole, the church seems irrelevant. Join Kristin to consider why pursuit of a healthy multiethnic, just, and sustainable church can revive your faith, hope, and passion for ministry and the work to which God has called you: a church worth building and fighting for!
Session C - Thursday, Nov 10 (10:45a)
Partnering with Latino Churches • Angel Jordan
Representing nearly one out of every six adults, and with four out of five identifying as Christians, Latinos are not only influencing America but forging the future of Christianity. In this workshop, Angel will highlight their growing impact and discuss how non-Latino churches today can engage and partner with them.
Session D - Thursday, Nov 10 (1:30p)
The Forgotten Minority • Eli Bonilla Jr.
How can we better navigate unhelpful boxes constructed by culture, society, and the church, when engaging the diversity conversation? As immigrant communities, interracial relationships, and globalization push the church beyond Black and white, what can you do to lead a truly mixed body of believers? Join Eli for this informative and practical discussion.
