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 seminar 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 seminar. 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.
