Ambassadors of Racial Reconciliation


Ambassadors of Racial Reconciliation

Special Training Event

Sunday, September 27

1:00 - 5:00 pm

Cedar Fork Baptist

Join us for this special training event led by Adrienne M. B. Davis. This training is designed to help Christian leaders and congregations better understand the impact that race and ethnicity has on relationships within the church and in the local community.

The ministry of reconciliation calls us to confront the reality of sin. We serve as representatives, sent by God to the world, to share His message of salvation, mercy, and grace. While sin lives in individual hearts, it also thrives in our world’s social systems and institutions. Only together can we face and overcome the challenges that hinder our desire to grow as a diverse and inclusive church, reaching the local community and the world.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-20
