The Gospel, Racial Reconciliation & the Church

“The Gospel, Racial Reconciliation & the Church” addresses a topic that is filled with so much pain, hurt, disappointment, and offers hope as it relates to diversity, inclusion, and equity. This course was specifically designed for leaders who have a willingness to sit at the table together and to have this conversation with one another based on the gospel.

This course is designed to help leaders answer many of the pressing questions around racial dynamics, across racial lines such as: What does the Bible say about the construct of race? Are race and ethnicity the same thing? Is it right/wrong to acknowledge racial/ethnic differences? What does the Bible teach about interethnic marriage? Why has the Bible been used to justify racial oppression? How do we build the kind of churches that model diversity and equality in the midst of a racially divided world? And more
