Conversations about race and ethnicity can be uncomfortable, but your children are already learning about race from the world around them. 

Conversations about race and ethnicity can be uncomfortable. Often parents don’t know what to say or how to say it. It might seem easier to duck a hard, confusing subject, but your children are already learning about race from the world around them. But are they hearing what God has to say in the Bible?

Talking to Your Children About Race: A Biblical Framework for Honest Conversations

Pastor Jerome Gay Jr. equips parents for conversations about race, helping you take an active role in ensuring that your children are given a biblically rooted and gospel-saturated view of race and ethnicity.

Learn tips for discussing issues of injustice and biblical reconciliation, as well as proactively engaging and learning from others from different ethnic backgrounds. By not shying away from this topic, we will be equipping our children as kingdom citizens who reflect Jesus to a polarized world.

  • Jerome’s uncanny savvy to unearth the ancient depths of biblical text as well as nuance it for our day is genius. I’m so glad to have his voice that I have heard for almost a decade, that I have heard through his journey now written. Take this work and apply it to areas of your life where you are trusting God to redeem.
