Diversity in Student Work
Wed 28th April - 10.30am - 12pm
The breadth and depth of the student body represent numerous ethnicities, nations, and languages spoken. But does our student work reflect that? More than ever, we hear God’s call to reach every tribe and tongue. More than just talking about diversity, join us to consider what it looks like to include, integrate and reach the nations of the world on our doorstep in student towns and cities. Join us to pray that God continues to dismantle division, racial bias, and imposter syndrome in and outside of the Church.
