Who will stand and be a witness for our times today? Even when it's rough...?
Drew G. I. Hart is a professor of theology at Messiah University in Pennsylvania. He has 10 years of pastoral ministry experience and has worked for an afterschool program in the city for middle school boys, and he collaborates with organizers and activists in his city working for justice. His book, Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism, utilizes everyday stories, Jesus-shaped lessons, and anti-racism frameworks to transform the church’s understanding and social witness. Drew’s writing can be found in Red Letter Christians, Sojourners, The Christian Century, and The Mennonite, among other places, and Dr. Hart speaks regularly at colleges, conferences, and churches throughout North America. Drew also serves as a co-host for the Inverse Podcast, along with Australian peace activist, Jarrod Mckenna. His newest book is entitled Who Will Be a Witness?: Igniting Activism for God’s Justice, Love, and Deliverance and was published on September 1, 2020. Dr. Drew Hart was the recipient of bcmPEACE’s 2017 Peacemaker Award and was honored locally with the 2019 W.E.B.
