Monuments, Memorials and Your Ministry

As the recent discord surrounding Confederate memorials became a nationwide conversation, an excellent article was published in the September issue of Christianity Today:

Facing Our Legacy of Lynching, by D. L. Mayfield

With the author’s permission, Dream of Destiny director, Travis Hurley, recently preached the article, supplementing it with additional Scriptures and thoughts. The audio from the message is available here, and the PowerPoint for the message is also available here.

We pray this content will help shape how you handle this sensitive issue in your sphere of influence.

About Travis Hurley

A graduate of Ozark Christian College and Cincinnati Christian University, Travis has been working in multi-ethnic ministry for over 15 years. He is a doctoral candidate at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, pursuing a D.Min in multi-ethnic leadership, while continuing to teach and consult on issues of unity and diversity in the body of Christ.
