faith-based reconciliation in santa barbara
Christ The King has conducted many local faith-based reconciliation initiatives since 1996 that have included pastors, community leaders, Jewish/Christian reconciliation and racial reconciliation. At the present time Christ The King has a partner relationship with Friendship Missionary Baptist Church. Together we have established a racial reconciliation initiative.
The purpose of the racial reconciliation initiative is to create a people movement in Santa Barbara that is grounded in a reconciling spirit and reconciled relationships as a foundation for genuine social change in our community. We believe that it is time to have an honest conversation about race that addresses local systemic injustice. We are utilizing the faith-based reconciliation process as a vehicle for creating this people movement that invites God into the process to soften hearts as a prelude to joint problem solving.
