Waking Up to Race: A Faith-Filled Conversation About Reconciliation
A community conversation with Rev. Daniel Hill, author White Awake
Pastor Daniel Hill will never forget the day he heard these words from a fellow pastor: “Daniel, you may be white, but don’t let that lull you into thinking you have no culture. White culture is very real. In fact, when white culture comes in contact with other cultures, it almost always wins. It would be a really good idea for you to learn about your culture.”
In this special MissionSmith session, Hill will share experiences from his path to cultural awakening as a disciple of Jesus and church leader, addressing and confronting racial and systemic injustices. This free session will give you a new perspective on being an agent of Christ-centered reconciliation in our increasingly diverse and divided world.
Hill is the founding and senior pastor of River City Community Church, a multiethnic Chicago congregation. He is the author of 10:10: Life to the Fullest and White Awake. Hill previously worked in the business sector and at Willow Creek Community Church. He holds degrees from Purdue University and Moody Bible Institute, as well as a certificate in church-based community development from Harvard Divinity School.
