An Evening with Bryan Stevenson

November 8 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

 


AMERICAN INJUSTICE: MERCY, HUMANITY AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE

SOLD OUT

America has the largest prison population in the world – and the criminal justice system that puts the men, women, and children in these prisons is broken. Excessive punishment and abuse are widespread, and the collateral consequences are devastating lives and communities. An inspiring and unflinchingly honest speaker, Bryan Stevenson talks about defending some of America’s most rejected and marginalized people. The stories he tells are heartbreaking, yet inspiring, and motivate audiences to make a change.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Bryan Stevenson

A MacArthur fellow and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Stevenson is a founding leader of the movement against mass incarceration in the U.S. He is the founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, the author of the recent New York Times bestseller, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption.

PANELISTS

Edrin Williams | Sanctuary Covenant Church

Edrin C. Williams has served as the Pastor of Equipping & Formation at Sanctuary Covenant Church in Minneapolis, MN since 2013. Edrin came to Sanctuary in 2011 to lead MOSAIC, a youth ministry comprised of students from all over the Twin Cities metro. Before joining the staff of The Sanctuary, Edrin led a vibrant youth & children’s ministry at the Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN for six years.

Edrin is an advocate of the local church, and he’s very passionate about equipping leaders of all ages who will impact society with the Gospel of Jesus. He uses biblical teaching, humor, storytelling, and his social science background to influence others in the ways of Jesus. Most recently, he was a contributor to Father Factor: American Christian Men on Fatherhood and Faith, a project with White Cloud Press, and the author of Reclaiming Fatherhood, which appeared in YouthWorker Journal. You can find his irregular but interesting blogs about faith & family at www.edrinwilliams.com.

 

Le Que HeidKamp | Mercy Vineyard Church

Le Que Heidkamp is Co-Lead Pastor of Mercy Vineyard Church in Minneapolis, MN, which she and her husband Jeff founded in 2004. Le Que’s background as a Chinese-Vietnamese refugee immigrant to the US has given her a passion to learn and teach about racial justice. She has served the Vineyard National Association of Churches as a leader and teacher on the topics of racial diversity, reconciliation and multiethnic churches. Le Que and her husband have two daughters who are 15 and 10 and, to the astonishment of everyone who knows them, a cat.

 

 

Matthew St. John | New Hope Church

Matthew is the senior pastor of New Hope Church, an Evangelical Free Church with approximately 3,000 followers of Jesus committed to being a Christ-centered community for all people. Having served as a senior pastor for over two decades, as well as having represented Christ in twenty-five countries around the world, Matthew nurtures a deep passion for sharing God’s Word so that all who are spiritually hungry may experience and proclaim the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary (ThM; DMin) and King College (BA), Matthew has spent years contributing to more than just the local church, consulting with a variety of global ministries and serving various boards. He is currently vice-chair of the Board of Governors for Trinity Western University in Canada.
