Courageous Conversations pairs African American voices trained at conservative evangelical seminaries or divinity schools with African American voices trained at mainline seminaries or divinity schools to discuss controversial topics.
We will have our first national Courageous Conversations event in Chicago, IL at the Historic Progressive Baptist Church on Monday, September 3rd. We will have 24 scholars and pastors to discuss topics like justice, the authority of scripture, sexuality, and gospel preaching.
