Church Cohorts

Equipping Reconciliation Leaders in the Church

The gospel includes a calling to reconciliation across racial, gender, ethnic, social, and cultural barriers. It is deeply disturbing that so many Christians think that reconciliation has nothing to do with their faith as followers of Christ. The Church must recover its power to address systemic realities of justice, advocacy, and biblical reconciliation. 


Discipleship is an invitation to follow Jesus into a broken world as ambassadors of healing, wholeness, and peace. The Roadmap to Reconciliation IGuide process will give your church the strategy and the tools to implement a 6-9-month process of reconciliation within your congregation. This cohort brings together leaders from similar organizational settings to go deeper with others also on this journey. This online training process is led by two of our SMA associates and is designed to facilitate growth in a 7 phase process. 

Who is this for?

  • This consulting and training process is for pastors, leaders, and/or key influencers in one’s organization who want to restore the credibility of the Church by embodying the truth and power of the gospel to bring hope, healing, and reconciliation into a broken and divided world.

  • It is best suited for those who want to go deeper in their reconciliation praxis to facilitate systemic change in their local context.
     

What can you expect?

  • Online Training and Consulting
    Salter McNeil & Associates (SMA) brings leaders from similar settings together to go deeper and further with others also on this journey. This online training process is led by two of our SMA associates and is designed to facilitate growth and transformation, leading to systemic change in your local context. 

  • Networking with other Church Leaders 
    Team members can also network with other like-minded leaders from different churches, ministries, and organizations. This provides the opportunity for sharing resources, collaborating, and offering mutual encouragement and support. Each team will have opportunities to glean from the experiences, insights, wisdom, and resources of other groups. 
     

How does it work?

  • The pastor or senior leader should select two co-leaders—ideally from different racial, ethnic, or cultural backgrounds—to attend the monthly cohort training sessions. These co-leaders should be people who have demonstrated a lived commitment to reconciliation, diversity, and justice.

  • Purchase the Roadmap to Reconciliation 2.0 book and the Implementation Guide (IGuide)

  • You can register any time.

  • The group will meet once a month for a 2-hour session on Zoom using the Roadmap to Reconciliation 2.0 book and the Implementation Guide (IGuide) as the curriculum.
