Join the Journey
Reconciliation Ministry is our shared ministry and currently has numerous expressions in the life of our church. Your Region sponsors camp and conferences for adults and youth to learn from each other’s cultural and historical experiences. Attend or sponsor a youth to attend camp. At the Regional level we also have Transformation Teams that focus on unraveling the effects of racism and separation in their programs and committees. Consider joining a team or inviting team members to your church. You can also participate in a training event sponsored by the Reconciliation Ministry or your Region. We encourage you to explore the many ways you can become an active participant in this church-wide commitment.
If your Region or ministry context would like to host an Anti-Racism training event, please complete the Training Request Form here:
Join a Team
One of the most effective ways to work for change is joining a Transformation Team. Teams are developed and trained to organize for change within their institution. Team members attend twelve days of training where they are introduced to a socio-historical analysis of racism in the United States, learn to use education as a tool of organizing, are introduced to organizing skills and develop a strategy to effect change in their organization.
The first step to joining a team is contacting its members. Have a conversation with them about the work of the team, their goals for the region, and their plans to expand the team. Ask them which kind of commitment is expected of members: length of commitment, number of meetings a year, hours of work a month. Attend one of the workshops offered by the team. Ask for a reading list. Attend an Introduction to the Analysis Training. Gather as much information as you can about the team and their ministry before choosing to join.
