Transformational, relationship-building discussions across racial lines
What are Truth Talks?
Giving Voice to Truth hosts regular Truth Talks, a 6-week program that guides members through a curriculum focusing on historical and current racial injustices, biases, and spiritual separations between members of the Body of Christ. Participants are asked to engage in a deep personal assessment of racial prejudice and then move towards healing through open, unfiltered discussion and prayer.
Truth Talks welcome members of all races, sexes, and ages.
Truth Talks are virtual through Zoom, which means anyone can participate, regardless of location. We are currently accepting new members for the posted upcoming dates.

What Participants Are Saying
Jared, Truth Talk Alumnus
This workshop has allowed me to better understand how history connects to the present, the depth of the brokenness and sin in our society, my own role in that brokenness, and a path towards healing.
Marlin, Truth Talk Alumnus
I have been a part of similar discussions in the past, but this discussion was the first one that forced me to look within and determine the spiritual and historical roots of the racial issues we face as a country. I was challenged, educated, confronted, and transformed. Transformation is a journey, and for me, Truth Talks was a necessary first step.
Patrick, Truth Talk Alumnus
I really appreciated the way honest dialogue was encouraged through love and empathy. I am more hopeful than ever that I can eliminate my own biases, develop new relationships, and contribute to overcoming injustice in our communities.
