RACIAL RECONCILIATION

As part of our #MYNC vision, we will actively engage in an effort to become a more unified, and racially diverse, body of believers by embracing our God-given responsibility of becoming reconciled to each other through a deeper understanding of racial divides and biblical resolutions.

Racial reconciliation is a complex issue, one that requires humility and grace on all sides.  If you are new to thinking about racial reconciliation, we’ve intentionally selected and structured foundational resources at the bottom of this page. We will add to that foundational list periodically, as well as post other resources below that are relevant to current events and/or upcoming opportunities.
