“The Most Segregated hour…” – Growing the Beloved Community in Racial Reconciliation - Beth Paz & May Tag Yang
Now that we have your attention! Join us as we scripturally explore God’s heart for reconciliation. Learn through compelling video clips, stories and group discussions. You’ll be challenged with three practical tools to better engage reconciliation in your community and churches.
Spirituality for the Long Haul - Dr. Sherry Wallings
Workshop participants will be invited to join Dr. Sherry Walling in reflecting on the mental health of urban residents and urban workers. We will spend time exploring the psychological consequence of exposure to violence and trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder, burnout, and depression. Dr. Walling will also discuss resilience in urban neighborhoods and invite participants to consider strategies for self care. This is a valuable seminar for those beginning urban work, as well as for those who have a great deal of experience working in urban neighborhoods.
Being Salt & Light in your Neighborhood - Scott Carolan & Kim Feil
When we talk about being missional it should affect where we live, work, and play. What does it take to be missional in those areas? How do you break down walls in your neighborhood?
Engaging Urban Youth with a Relevant Gospel - Gabe Hernandez
There is a Gospel that is tame and does not break through the culture of many youth today…this tame Gospel is ineffective and will never impact the youth of today unless the message is allowed to live in the midst of and alongside the disallowed, the untamed, the reckless and extremely broken. Jesus models that in the synoptic Gospels as well as John. Jesus’ message was as counter cultural as could be imagined. He engaged people where they were and gave exactly what was needed even when it was deserved the least.
I was a Stranger… Scripture and Immigration - Yaneth Barreto, Able Bustos & Nayely Carlos
The Evangelical Immigration Table has launched a national campaign to help believers understand what God’s word says about immigration. In light of our location in the Central Valley it is critical that we discover our part in this crisis. This breakout is hosted by members of the Fresno Pacific Dreamers Club.
Male Abolitionists are Key to ending Modern Day Slavery - Kathy McIllargey, Steve Bixler, Julie Brager, and Christine Riley
We will highlight the historical role of male abolitionists and the men today who are leading the way nationally and internationally including IJM with Gary Haugen and Truckers against Trafficking. Finally, we will call for men to take their place in this fight locally.
