As we celebrate the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, we look at how the issues of racial strife in our nation continue to tear apart relationships across our nation. So how does the church move toward racial reconciliation? Ed Stetzer talks with Michelle Sanchez of the Evangelical Covenant Church about how in seeking Christ as our guide, and celebrating the differences God created within us, we can reconcile all things to Him.
Michelle Sanchez serves as Executive Minister of Make and Deepen Disciples for the Evangelical Covenant Church, a multiethnic denomination of over 900 congregations throughout North America. Michelle began her career as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs and ministered to international students with Cru in New York City. Michelle has also served in various capacities with the Institute for Bible Reading, the Pelican Project, and the Lausanne Movement for world evangelization. Michelle is the author of three books designed to provide Christ-centered racial discipleship for all ages including Color-Courageous Discipleship.
