How can church leaders and congregations respond to hate, intolerance and systemic racism in their communities in productive and transformative ways? What does the gospel of Jesus Christ call Christ-followers to do in situations like these?

Participants in Pastors and Leaders 2019 — an annual leadership conference at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) — will explore the biblical and theological grounding of their call to get involved and will become equipped to help their congregations respond to incidences of intimidation. The event, on the theme “Loving Our Neighbors in Tense Times,” will run from 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25, through 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28, on the AMBS campus in Elkhart, Indiana.
