The Gospel Initiative is beginning a series of online Issues Forums on “Churches Engaging Racism for the Sake of the Gospel.” All events are from 11:00am to 12:15pm MT. You can register for these Issues Forums using the following links:
- March 25 | Racism “Under the Law:” Confronting the underpinnings of racial profiling and high incarceration rates among people of color

The Gospel Initiative convenes pastors, ministry leaders, and theological educators as content experts to educate and increase awareness about important social issues for church mission, evangelistic ministry, and discipleship. The Gospel Initiative uses resources and educational events to prepare men and women to engage the needs of the world with the redemptive power of the gospel and the life-changing truth of Scripture. The views of the speakers reflect their experience with the topic and are valued because of how they may help churches equip themselves to address social issues in ministry.
