Show Notes

The insurrection at the Capitol Building on January 6th will be forever etched in the minds of Americans.  On full display that day were White nationalists with their American and Trump 2020 flags,  showing their undying love for a president who promotes hate, while also proudly carrying signs with quotes from scripture.

Jer Swigart, Co-Founder of the Global Immersion Project is a peacemaker and pastor who confronts the racist past of the evangelical church and seeks to build church leaders who embrace a deeper understanding of Christianity--one that acknowledges the wrongs of the past while building anti-racist church leaders for the future. 

In this episode, Dr. Frank and Jer dive deep into the intersections of White nationalism and the church,  discuss his work as a global peacemaker, and explore a conversation where church leaders lead a movement that is rooted in justice.
