Drew G. I. Hart is an author, activist, and professor in theology in the Bible and Religion department at Messiah College with ten years of pastoral experience. His work beyond teaching and writing has included pastoring in Harrisburg and Philadelphia, working for an inner-city after school program for black and brown middle school boys, delivering lectures and leading anti-racism workshops, collaborating with faith-based organizers in his neighborhood, and doing a broad range of public theology. Trouble I’ve Seen utilizes personal and everyday stories, Jesus-shaped theological ethics, and anti-racism frameworks to transform the church’s understanding and witness.
He will lead a workshop for church leaders from 1-3 PM and offer a public lecture at 7:30 PM in the sanctuary of Saint Mark. Both events are designed to address ways the church can counter the sin of racism with practices that embody the story of Jesus.
