Speakers: Eric Mason, Dr. Soong Chan Rah, & Noel Castellanos

The gospel and race conference exists to address issues of ethnic & racial tensions. We seek to confront the problem(s) and proclame the answer.
"Learn to do good, seek justice. Defend the oppressed..." Isaiah 1:17
In the garden, our relationship with God and each other was corrupted. We lost our way and spiraled downward. Humanity sought after personal pleasure and comfort rather than what is right and good for everyone. When the story gets to the above words from the book of Isaiah, the people of Israel are confronted by God with their idolatry and injustice.
And today, God's words echo to us. We must look honestly at our own idolatry. We must address unjust ways.
At the third annual [G]RACE Conference, leaders from diverse contexts will provide attendee's with frameworks for comprehensively practicing justice and reconciliation in our communities and churches.
