CSU sponsors 1Charleston 2017 conference

It’s one thing to recognize racial, political and cultural divides in our community, country and churches.  A conference sponsored by Charleston Southern University hopes to also provide some solutions to bridging those gaps.

On Feb. 11, at Burke High School, 1Kingdom Conference will devote all its sessions to revealing how Christians can play a role in affecting change.

CSU Director of Diversity, Marcus Bryant, is one of the conference planners and believes “individuals who attend this conference will be enriched by meaningful dialogue regarding race and the church.  The conference will be centered around systems of bias and how to be a change agent.”

Jesus’s atoning work sought to make one people out of many.  The cross brings vertical reconciliation between man and God, while also providing horizontal reconciliation between man and man.

The event starts at 8 a.m. and concludes at 3 p.m.  There will be guest speakers and four sessions along with a live Q & A session.  Among the topics:

  • How to respond to tragedy corporately
  • Embracing those who suffer
  • How to move forward corporately and individually

Founded in 1964, Charleston Southern University is a private, four-year liberal arts college. CSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention. The university's vision is to be a Christian university nationally recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.
