When Virginia Tech senior Bryan Carey heard that Chris Heuertz would be speaking at Reconcilers Weekend, he signed up for the two-day conference hosted at Duke Divinity School.
Carey, 24, wanted a space to continue thinking through the life that God may be calling him to after graduation, and he welcomed the opportunity to hear from those who had gone before him.
Jaylynn Byassee is redefining her role as Minister of Adult Discipleship and Witness at her church.
Byassee said that when she began working at Duke Memorial United Methodist Church this summer, she believed a big part of her role was to help her congregants engage in the Durham community and to “figure out what we can do for the homeless and for the poor.”
When Tolu Sosanya came to Duke Divinity School, she wasn’t interested in the ministry of reconciliation. But her focus shifted after she spent two summers interning with New Song Urban Ministries — a ministry with the mission to “love God and love your neighbor.” New Song seeks to fulfill this mission through providing weekly worship services, affordable housing, quality education, job placements and other services to build up the Sandtown community located in West Baltimore.

The Center for Reconciliation at Duke Divinity School will host the Duke Summer Institute, a five-day intensive to nourish, renew, and deepen the capacities of Christian leaders in the ministry of reconciliation, justice, and peace.
This year's institute, "The Ministry of Reconciliation in a Divided World," will be limited to 200 participants. It will offer a community of learning among diverse peers and intimate interaction with a leading faculty of practitioners and theologians. Participants will experience in-depth teaching, prayer and worship, shared meals, wrestling with real contexts and challenges, and opportunity to reflect on their own vocation and setting.
Join us Sept. 24-25 for Reconcilers Weekend, a three-day experience of teaching, preaching, and conversation hosted by the Duke Center for Reconciliation on Duke University’s beautiful campus.
