God’s Global Story – February 27-29, 2024

Dr. Vince Bantu is the Assistant Professor of Church History and Black Church Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. Bushnell is pursuing meaningful conversations about how the Gospel nurtures present and future hopes of, in the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, “the creation of the Beloved Community.” It is in this spirit, and with this hope, that we continue Bushnell’s commitment to calling and Christ-centered reconciliation in the invitation of Dr. Bantu to campus. More information to come.
