2021 Fall Racial Equity Training

Register By Mail | Register Online | Download the Flyer North Carolina Region,  Since August 2017, the Anti-Racism/Pro-Reconciliation (ARPR) Commission of the  Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in North Carolina has offered Racial Equity Training for Clergy and Church Leaders in fulfilling the requirement for racial equity training set forth in Resolution I passed at the 2016 Regional Assembly held in Greenville, NC.  Over the course of four years, our Racial Equity Training has been faithful and effective in garnering the attention of other states and regions across the nation including South Carolina and Texas. Our training model is a sixteen-hour in-person process over the course of two days. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the ARPR Commission was forced to cancel the  Spring 2020 training as well as limit the platform capacity of our Fall 2020 training.  In a pre-pandemic world, we strived to offer a high-quality, interactive journey filled with biblical and historical content that offers clarity, sensitivity, and self-discovery as it relates to race. This model has been effective and impactful. Attendees have emerged armed with a common language, historical accuracy, better listening techniques, and the importance of sharing our stories! In June 2021, the ARPR Commission and the Regional Minister were able to offer an online Racial Equity Training through the support and hard work of our Training Team. This online model consisted of a series of (1) self-paced lessons through an e-learning platform, (2) online discussion forums, and (3) scheduled zoom sessions. This training was effective and successful. Additionally, we discovered ways to improve and streamline the online experience. While the process and content of the training are the same as our in-person, two-day workshop, the format, delivery, and length are different. Participants begin with an orientation session via Zoom, then complete self-paced lessons over the course of 3 weeks and conclude the course with several scheduled Zoom sessions. Our goal is to refrain from two concurrent days of eight-hour long zoom meetings while including as much interaction as possible through the best practices of online continuing education.  We have set the next online workshop dates as follows: Oct 18 (Mon) – Opening Zoom Session (6-8:30pm) Oct 19 (Tues) – Online Lessons Open for Participants to complete Nov 1 (Mon) – Zoom Day 1 (9am-12noon & 2pm-5pm) Nov 6 (Sat) – Zoom Day 2 (10am-12noon & 2pm-5pm) Nov 9 (Tues) – Online Course Closes We encourage all clergy who have not yet completed the required Racial Equity Training to register for the online training as soon as possible as participation is limited to forty (40)  participants. Grace & Peace to you,  Bishop Valerie Melvin, Regional Minister, NC  Rev. Dr. Jackie McHenry, Chair, ARPR Commission  Rev. Jason Williams, Vice-Chair, ARPR Commission…
