Congregational Engagement

Focus Area – Racial Reconciliation

EHF’s Congregational Engagement team supports congregations to engage in racial justice initiatives, partner in community conversations to build trust, and create opportunities to network for increased solidarity in addressing structural racism.

Nationally, The Episcopal Church has made Becoming Beloved Community a cornerstone for the church. In addition, EHF partners with Intercultural Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and the Anti-Racism Network of Provence VII.

The Racial Reconciliation work of EHF will connect you to congregational leaders and consultants including Traces of the Trade, One Human Race, and Project Curate. These resources for congregations create a pathway to open courageous spaces for dialog and to develop localized strategies for congregational and community training.  

EHF strives to build regionalized networks of churches to continue this community partnered work together.
