Damascus Road Training

The training is open to anyone interested in this work and is recommended for all conference, congregational, Conference Related Ministry & Partner In Mission leaders. Dismantling systemic racism is an integral part of Franconia Conference’s vision to be missional, intercultural, and transformational in every aspect of ministry.
