Radical Welcome, Transformative Faith: Whole-Hearted Church Life & Leadership
Come and explore…
- What does it mean for people to feel really welcome, and not just greeted or tolerated?
- Whose stories do not yet shape the history, culture, worship and identity of your church?
- How is God calling to live the gospel from the “inside out” by embracing the margins?
- What does it look like to “be the church” outside of the mainline-church-industrial-complex?

The Central Pacific Conference of the United Church of Christ invites you an interactive, participatory workshop led by Resolutions Northwest, in fulfillment of our 2015 Resolution to be an Anti-Racist Conference. We will explore issues of institutional equity and justice: how we hold and share power, nurture presence for marginalized voices and leadership, and embody radical welcome within our churches, conference and the wider world. You are invited to join in allowing your heart and your congregation’s life to be transformed by The Other’s presence, gifts and power among you.
