Liberating Evangelicalism - Decentering Whiteness
September 19-21, 2019, Chicago
Christian evangelicalism has often been equated with partisan politics and the faulty assumption that all evangelicals are white. Liberating Evangelicalism seeks to challenge this assumption by creating a space for a biblically-based, people of color centered movement that is open to all who seek to build a Jesus-centered vision for social justice. A space where people of color are at the center rather than the margins of the conversation, a place to build visions of liberation and inclusion, and a place for belonging and community-building with peoples across diverse political and theological perspectives. Our team will be hosting a gallery-like exhibit and engaging in dialogue about how God is moving through the small, grass-root immigrant church on the South Texas and Mexico border.
