Please join us for “From Outreach to Embracing: A Biblical and Transformational Model for Equity-based Hospitality,” a 10-week learning process beginning January 7, 2021. Rev. Dr. Denise Kingdom Grier will facilitate master classes, and the Equity-based Hospitality team will facilitate the practicum sessions. This process will be a mix of real-time and self-guided learning, anchored by a weekly 90-minute virtual gathering.

The four components of the “From Outreach to Embracing” model will be taught in a two-week rhythm. The first week will be a "master class" with Rev. Dr. Kingdom Grier; the second week will be a practicum led by our team. An introduction session and a capstone/synthesis session will bookend the process. Participants will leave equipped to bring this model to their congregations/communities, even as it deepens their own discipleship journeys.

Cost: $50.00
