“We’ve got to raise the conversation on reconciliation in the Church back to the common language of love."
In the summer of 2016, amidst racial violence and unrest, several pastors came together to seek God’s solution and to intercede on behalf of our nation: Billy & Maribeth Humphery, Garland & Eileen Hunt, Scott & Tami Free, Corey & Jade Lee, and Hazen & Hannah Stevens. It was in this gathering that the vision of OneRace was born. Shortly after, Josh & Lakisha Clemons were invited to support and help lead this initiative.
This core believed that the Church must step up and lead where it has historically lagged. The driving impression among these leaders was that God wanted a reconciliation movement to address the sin of historic racism & injustice, and to unite the Church. This unity and oneness would then prepare the way for massive revival across the southeast.
