The Hole in Our Discipleship: How Racism Hinders our Ministry and Leadership
Join two key voices at Missio Alliance in a compelling conversation on the impact of racism in our personal and ministerial journeys. Natasha Sistrunk Robinson (author of A Sojourner's Truth) and David Swanson (author of Rediscipling the White Church) will address how our discipleship has failed to adequately account for and address these forces in our lives and our churches, and what it might look like to name and dismantle racist and white-centered attitudes and perspectives more intentionally. You will also hear about the ways in which discipleship in and through us has been malformed or underformed and gain practical ideas to move forward as lifelong learners of a holistic Gospel.
In this conversation, you will...
Hear from two respected and experienced leaders who have written and spoken extensively on this topic
Learn about the truths that the church still needs to face regarding the racial inequities that exist in our congregations
Understand the biblical grounding for why these kinds of conversations are not anti-gospel, but in fact a reflection of the gospel
Discover the ways in which our discipleship journeys have been under- or malformed leading to gaps in the churches where we lead and serve
