Pre-Conference Evening Session

"Undivided: Racial Reconciliation”
with Dhati Lewis, Ed Stetzer & Dr. Bob Roberts
Martin Luther King Jr. famously said that “Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. was the most racially segregated hour of the week.” Recent research indicates that this statement remains true for the majority of North American congregations.
Is there a path forward for racial reconciliation, multi-ethnic ministries, and healing of the racial divide? What should be the church’s role?
Ed Stetzer, Dhati Lewis, and Bob Roberts carry a burden, not only for the expansion of God’s Kingdom globally, but for the expansion of that same Kingdom across the ethnic divide. This evening will provide an opportunity for provocative storytelling, interactive Q & A, and practical guidance on how the average church can step across the racial lines locally, nationally, and globally.
