As Common Ground Northeast continues it's journey of pursuing racial equity and reconciliation we believe it's critical to make space as a church to engage this difficult and very critical conversation. This year's Reconcile Conference will serve that purpose. The 2019 Reconcile Conference will give us perspectives and experiences to de-center biases, blindspots, and our own experiences in order to gain a greater understanding of our call to be reconcilers in our community.

This conference features speakers from a number of disciplines and areas of focus to provide tools we can use in our everyday lives.


  • Dr. Joseph Tucker Edmonds- Professor and author

  • Melyssa Cordero-Founder of The Roots Project Tampa

  • Dr Eric Magnusson- Educator

  • Hazel Owens- Speaker and Staff Member at CG Midtown

  • Ben Tapper- Speaker, Author, Invisible Truths Podcast host

  • Bwana Clements- Author, Counselor and Youth Advocate, CGNE member

CONFERENCE DATE: September 14, 2019

TIME: 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Note: There will be a break for lunch, as a full meal is not provided. Also, we will not be providing childcare.
