Pursue racial harmony with the Church leading the way toward unity in Christ.

SANKOFA JOURNEY

This intentionally multi-ethnic, experiential, and spiritual journey of Minnesota church leaders exploring civil rights landmarks.  Through experiencing America’s troubled history of slavery and racism, we seek to move forward in pursuit of oneness as the Body of Christ.

Together we can be the voices that promote healing and harmony in our fractured churches, cities and nation.
