Watch: African Americans and Evangelicalism (Free Webinar)

Written by

The American religious and political landscape has experienced serious upheaval since the 2016 election. Since then, many have been rethinking their relationship with Evangelicalism.

In this free webinar, you’ll hear from Natasha Sistrunk Robinson and Santes Beatty provide guidelines and reflection for navigating this complex issue.

This is the kind of conversation you can expect from our partners at Call and Response: The Past, Present, and Future of Black Christians in America.

Taking its name and inspiration from the black preaching tradition in which the pastor and congregation joined together in the effective proclamation of the gospel, this conference will call together church folks, marketplace and nonprofit leaders, pastors, practitioners, artists, and activists from across generations to respond faithfully to the challenges and opportunities of the present moment in America. We seek to offer a prophetic witness to the church and the nation while remaining biblically-grounded in a holistic gospel that has the power to transform lives and communities.
