Deadline to register is April 1st

In the context of America’s rising Christian nationalism, pastors and church leaders face a particular challenge: how to navigate the hot-button issues that are being used to divide people while leading public witness at a moment when many see faith as a principal driver of division. This 4-session workshop series is a journey to Pentecost designed to help church leaders understand the history and culture of Christian nationalism, analyze how their own congregation and community is impacted by it, and develop practices for growth in public moral witness.

This opportunity is open to 32 NC Conference clergy. The NC Conference’s Office of Race, Equity, and Justice Ministries is covering $75 toward the total registration, making the cost to you $25 for the full four-week workshop series. Plan to attend all sessions so that you can engage in continued conversations weekly. If you have a conflict for one of the meeting dates, let us know and we will record the session and send you the meeting link.

Participants will:

  • Receive a copy of Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove’s book,  Revolution of Values: Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good.
  • Meet virtually as a cohort with Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, 1-2pm EST on four consecutive Tuesdays (April 26, May 3, May 10, and May 17).
  • Connect with colleagues who seek to offer a faithful public witness in this moment.
