The Local Church & Social Justice: Bringing Church to the Streets
Presenters: Rev. Dr. Don Gillett and Rev. Megan Huston
When ministers are at their best, they are preachers, organizers and chaplains, but balancing these roles can be challenging, especially in the midst of our current political divide. Rev. Dr. Don Gillett and Rev. Megan Huston spent two years working together as clergy leaders for Kentucky’s Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. They will share stories and best practices about navigating the difficult path of balancing the pastoral and the prophetic. During this webinar, participants will be invited to ask questions and explore what it means to be called as a pastor or lay leader to live into the ministry of loving God and neighbor.
Rev. Megan Huston is in her 11th year of congregational ministry and is currently serving in her sixth year as Senior Minister of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Bowling Green, Ky. She also serves as a TriChair for the Kentucky Poor People’s Campaign.
Rev. Dr. Donald K. Gillett II is the Senior Pastor at East Second Street Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Lexington, Ky., where he has served since July 1999. He is the Executive Director of the Kentucky Council of Churches. He also serves as a Tri-Chair of the Kentucky Poor People’s Campaign.
Discuss these webinars via Zoom on Monday, December 7 at 7 pm. A link/call-in number for this discussion will be sent to you during the last week of November.
