Yes, we hear you... pandemic, economic slowdown, protest police brutality and you guys are talking about love and the church leading in community to remove barriers. Yes, we are...
Pastor John P. Perkins and Anthony D. Bobo, Jr. will be sharing "The Church as A Catalyst to Removing Barriers in Rebuilding Poor Communities'' at The Center for ADR 2020 Virtual Conference. They will talk about tools for ensuring healthy relationships in communities and discussing ways to decrease barriers as they are outlined in their book Commissioned to Love. "With all we are dealing with today, there are more conversations about reconciliation. We see reconciliation and justice as measures of a true impact of the church in community. I am excited to be a part of the annual Center for ADR conference once again. I am even more excited to have my friend John with me as we share concepts to deal with conflict in community. We don't have all the answers, but we are willing to explore possibilities."
While John and Anthony are sharing on July 2, 2020, at 2:00 pm (ET), they invite you to be a part of the entire conference. This is The Center for ADR's first Virtual Conference (Series I, June 24-July 2 & Series II, July 10, 2020) and there will be 20+ workshops.
