Greetings my Brothers and Sisters!


I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!


The Anti- Racism and Pro- Reconciliation Ministry (ARPR) is charged with assessing the spiritual health of the Virginia Region. The work is a labor of love, by providing opportunities for healing and working towards reconciliation.


There is a transition in leadership. It is my privilege to serve as the new chair for the ARPR Ministry. I am hopeful that we will continue to grow and become stronger.


This ministry has an overview of the long- term and short-term goals. We will provide training sessions for each district council, congregations, youth ministries, and each clergy in this great region. These are some other things that we are doing.


  • A zoom pray vigil

  • One day Training for Clergy only

  • One day Annual “TABLE TALK”

  • Training each Ministry in the Region

  • Book Club

 If you would like to be a part of this great ministry, please join us.  


Please be prayerful as we continue making a difference in the lives of the Body of Christ.
