Cultural change is not coming from top tier leadership but from groundswells of those on the edges. This workshop will identify strategies to bring movement to a God-given calling even when there has been no formal invitation to lead. A case study will detail the journey of the NOW Movement which was started with one marginalized voice and resulted in a robust collective that emboldens followers to pursue racial justice. In a pandemic of dissension found even within the church, leaders must learn to steward their voices and their relational capital to create the change that is desired.
