In mid April, Kingdom Mission Society (KMS) helped to facilitate a day long pastors and lay leaders training as part of the National Workshop on Christian Unity (NWCU). As the Evangelical and Pentecostal presence at the workshop has grown, KMS has helped to fill in a coordinating role for what that presence could look like.
On Monday April 16th in Silver Spring, MD we helped to train over 25 leaders on best practices around Christian unity, working with difference, addressing racial understanding and action, and peacemaking.
Throughout the week KMS also helped to facilitate sessions at the workshop including one on the Evangelical and Mainline which explored differences and potential points of intersection, and one on breaking the silence around racism and getting engaged at the local level.
Next year the NWCU will be in St. Louis, MO April 1-4 2019.
