Bringing Reconciliation and Mission Together in Every Day Ministry
February 26, 2015
By A Free #MESC15 Webinar
What are some ways to bring reconciliation and mission together in the context of every day ministry? New York Urban Project Director Jonathan Walton will be presenting some of their program's best practices that will help you think through the personal, relational and systemic avenues for moving your ministry forward in reconciliation and mission.
This free webinar is brought to you by InterVarsity's Multiethnic Staff Conference 2015 (#MESC15), a triennial gathering taking place this week where nearly 300 InterVarsity staff are gathered in Orlando, FL to focus on how as a national movement we can grow in our commitment and effectiveness in multiethnic ministry.
Reconciliation and Mission Together: Best Practices from the New York Urban Project
Featured Presenter: Jonathan Walton
Jonathan Walton is InterVarsity's New York Urban Program Director and founder of the We LoGOFF Movement. Jonathan works to call students and volunteers to put their faith into concrete, sustainable, Christ-like action. He is the author of three books of poetry and short stories. The latest, "Legal: The First 21-Years". Walton is regular contributor to the Huffington Post and speaks on a variety of topics.
Presently, he lives with his wife, Priscilla, in Jackson Heights and looks forward to making Queens as much like Brodnax, Virginia as possible. Walton is also available to teach poetry and spoken word workshops and guest lecture at every level (references upon request). After much prayer and consideration, Walton has made a 20-year commitment InterVarsity and to his service to God and those who have yet to know Him.
Increasingly, InterVarsity students and staff are becoming aware of the Native people on their campuses and in their communities. I hope this story, and the ideas that follow, will give you concrete steps you can take to build relationships of respect, honor and trust with Native people.
