Pursuing racial healing and solidarity
A six-week multi-racial experiential journey
What if instead of the topic of race creating intensely heated or shamefully hushed conversations, there was an environment where those conversations could be doused in grace and become catalysts for the kind of listening, learning, growing that bridges racial divides and cultivates the “oneness” Jesus desires for his Church?
Each week includes scriptural teaching, small group conversations, activities, and assignments that engage multiple learning styles. The journey fosters belonging, hope, and deep community engagement, inspiring participants to be active peacemakers within their church and community.
There will be some pre-work that you will receive about one week before the start of the cohort to be completed before your first meeting.
If you are participating as a couple in the cohort, each of you must register individually with a unique email address (in other words, the same email address cannot be used for both participants).
