racial reconciliation

Both Christ the King and Friendship Missionary Baptist Church as partners are committed to creating 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 utilize the faith-based reconciliation process and a network of black/white core groups as vehicles for creating this people movement that invites God into the process to soften hearts as a prelude to joint problem solving. The core group methodology is based on a small group of men seeking to love Christ and to love each other as a faith-based foundation for social change.
