U.S. City Leaders Call

7/02/20

A church becomes cross-racial for one of four reasons, based on the social exchange theory which says, “The only reason why I’m going to cross over the racial divide … is because I gain something from your world that I can’t gain from my own.” In his presentation  “Coaching Tips to Bridging Racial Barriers” based on Galations 2, David D. Ireland, Ph.D. encourages us, as a network of US City Leaders, to be coachable by welcoming the confrontation, facing the challenge, and accepting the coaching. 

Dr. Ireland is an author, diversity consultant to the NBA and Lead Pastor of Christ Church New Jersey, whose 9,000+ members represent more than 70 nationalities.
