This free online event is for pastors, church staff, church councils–invite your whole congregation! On-Demand access is optional for $30.
The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody; clear disparities in healthcare that reveal ongoing inequities with COVID-19 deaths; political polarization that prevents real relationship, let alone legislative problem-solving; crippling unemployment numbers; impossible wealth disparity; pressing catastrophe from global climate change; the list could go on and on. 
God is calling the church into the public square, into the halls of power, and alongside the voices protesting on the streets. 
But how? And to what end?
Church Anew has gathered diverse set of nationally recognized thought leaders to speak, in short form, to how the church can lead in a time like this. These keynote speakers will amplify the voices of local leaders from the Minneapolis area, who will share stories of how the church is leading in our own context, particularly in response to systemic racism in our communities. We expect this digital conference to challenge and provoke participants so that church leaders from all over the nation can reclaim the immediacy and necessity of our ministry in a time like this.
