Our Regional Anti-Racism Workshop Facilitators are working with Rev. Yvonne Gilmore in our first congregational Reconciliation Ministry Anti-Racism workshop this month with St. Andrew Christian Church.
(Fifty staff and congregation members have registered for the 2-hour January 9th and 4 hour January 23rd workshops!)
We are also planning continuing education opportunities that dive deeper into our local context including a History of Racism and Anti-Racism in the KC Metro and Introduction to Faith Rooted Community Organizing in the KC Metro. These are intended for clergy and lay leaders that have already participated in the introductory Reconciliation Ministry Anti-Racism workshop. These workshops will meet the requirements for clergy standing. Until the pandemic has subsided, these opportunities will consist of online group workshops and recorded resources for individual driving or riding tours. When scheduled, these will be on our kcdisciples.org/ARPR page
