In the evangelical world, we are often very good at talking about bringing the gospel into our broken relationship with God through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We can even do a pretty good job aiding in the physical brokenness of the world by offering food, water, shelter, and medicine. However, we need to do a much better job of working against racism in our communities. Simply put, racism is wrong. It is inconsistent with the gospel of Jesus Christ and the church must work against it. Here are some people, groups, books and other resources that can help you engage effectively in racial reconciliation within your own community.

The Fellowship Center for Racial Reconciliation has been established to lead our church and community in the conversation and practice of racial reconciliation. The aim is to create a Gospel Centered environment that leads to active engagement in difficult conversations over a period of time that results in individual and systemic reconciliation.
