Dismantling Racism | North Metro

January 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Dismantling Racism with Dr. Ruben Rivera

A biblically-rooted process to help the Church recognize racial bias, reorient our hearts, and reconcile communities to Christ and each other.

Engage in the large context of the universal human fallen condition; discover the ways in which we miss God’s call to remarkable Christianity. Only then, will we be ready for what comes next in this multi-step developmental process of dismantling racism.

Next, explore how we are all captive to conscious and unconscious institutionalized and cultural forms of in-group bias, ethnocentrism, racism and other expressions of inequality and oppression. This Biblical approach will help us recognize and understand racial bias and racism in ourselves and society.




Dr. Ruben Rivera  |  Bethel University

Ruben Rivera, Ph.D. is educated in biblical studies and the history of Christianity and global mission. He is Chief Diversity Officer and has taught for many years at Bethel University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Ruben has given trainings in churches, schools and conferences across the U.S. on “Remarkable Christianity,” addressing the cultural captivity of Christ that has often lead to expressions of oppression and injustice, as well as training in racial reconciliation, diversity leadership and more. The “Shalom Seminar” he created for Bethel employees has been called a “new paradigm” in diversity training and is the basis for developing biblically grounded, culturally intelligent, transformative leaders and organizations.
