2016 Mission Leaders Conference
Personnel

This workshop will assess the current state of race relations within the North American church and speak to the necessity of pursuing a unified and ethnically diverse mobilization effort for both local and global missions. Specific emphasis will be given to issues of justice that persists within communities of color, while providing viable and practical solutions for a Biblical approach to unity in light of the Great Commission. Evangelical participation in past and present social movements aimed at addressing racial injustice (i.e. Civil Rights Movement, Black Lives Matter Movement) will be also highlighted.
