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.
Sign up to receive the reading guide and join fellow bridge-builders to process this content in a two-part series: 4/28 and 5/19, from 4-6pm.
If you are passionate about racial reconciliation and want to be part of helping co-facilitate a future series, apply now! (Mondays from 7-9pm: 6/10, 7/15, 8/12, 9/9)
Before you get started clicking on the links below, invite God to lead you on this journey. We recommend reading/viewing the links in the order they are listed, starting with “Racial Reconciliation May Not Be What You Think It Is.”
