Event description
On November 15-16, 2019 there will be 3 gatherings in Virginia cities bringing the body of Christ together with civic leaders to educate, cast vision, and to point toward an actionable plan. The plan is to define outcomes for each of the participating cities for 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Our keynote presenter November 15-16 is Bishop Claude Alexander of Park Church in Charlotte. Bishop Alexander is the former President of the Hampton Minister’s Conference, one of the largest clergy bodies in the world. He is also the primary organizer of R400 – a September gathering to reflect on the 400-year history of slavery and the next 400 years toward a redemptive future. He has spoken to the Congress of African Presidents in 2019.
Bishop Alexander serves as the Board Chair for Gordon Conwell Seminary. He has also served on the board of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Bishop Alexander was a keynote at Movement Day Africa in Nairobi in August 2018.
He will present the historical road map for race relations in the church in America dating back to 1619. He will also talk about Movement Day as a vehicle to bring diverse racial groups together to address the stubborn facts of local communities.
