October 28, 2014, four SPU faculty led campus in a dialogue that offered historical and theological context in which to process the recent events in Ferguson, as well as vulnerably presenting authentic perspectives and struggles on race relations. With insights from Brian Bantum, David Nienhuis, Jorge Preciado, Kimberly Segall and facilitated by Tali Hairston, this conversation was memorable.
Believing that the church needs to unite at a time when our country is so divided, we gathered on December 15, 2014 as Christians from all racial backgrounds, united by the gospel of Jesus Christ, to worship, pray, listen, encourage, and challenge each other.
Our Tenth Annual Lecture Series with evangelical leader, civil rights legend and founder Dr. John Perkins was on April 21, 2015. Dr. Perkins encouraged us through his chapel address on Tuesday and a faculty and student dinner with a discourse of leadership.
On April 23-25, 2015, Seattle Pacific hosted an international conference exploring the challenges and hopes of reconciliation. Interdisciplinary scholars, visionaries, and leaders from around the world - including Gladys Mwiti, Salim Munayer, David Kasali, and SPU faculty and staff - spoke and led workshops. The conference, presented by the Perkins Center, was in partnership with the Center for Biblical and Theological Education, and sponsored in partnership with ScholarLeaders International.
