G.Race Dialogues was born out of a specific church’s journey towards racial healing and reconciliation. In 2012, Co-Founder, Bethaney Wilkinson joined the team at Grace Midtown Church as apprentice with a focus on local mission. As a part of that role, she learned with time that even our best intentions come up short when it comes to navigating the complexities of mission and community across lines of racial and socio-economic difference. She realized that resourcing her church’s congregants in the work of race, local mission and biblical justice was of increasing importance as it related to the church’s mission to be a blessing in the city of Atlanta.

In the midst of Bethaney’s stirrings, the lead pastors at Grace Midtown Church, Matt and Margaret Reynolds, were also growing in their awareness of the need for deep racial healing. As headline after headline reported brutality towards men + women of color around the country, they felt the compassionate, righteous need to respond. Through relationship, as the church continued to grow in diversity, the pain of racial brokenness experienced by people of color in the congregation began to resonate with white congregants in profound ways. 

In response to this convergence of brokenness, cross-cultural proximity and the felt need for more understanding across racial + ethnic lines, G.Race Dialogues was born. Since its beginning, over 150 people have attended a G.Race Dialogues training. We have added G.Race Groups and G.Race Strategic Planning to add breadth and depth to our work with those who complete the day-long intensive.
