Intentionally Inclusive: Together at the Table for Ministry is a book about developing an inclusive ministry—with intentionality, creativity, and honesty. It is a story about ensuring that all of our diverse voices are present from the first moments of the process to the culminating festivities of sharing the table for ministry together. It is a story that expands our definition of culture beyond race and ethnicity—and yet that deals realistically with those aspects of culture as well. It is a book rich with honest reflection, thoughtful analysis, wise counsel, and practical strategies for undertaking the process in your own contexts. It is a book that invites the reader to write their own stories to join in the larger narrative about how we might learn to build a table, plan a menu, lay the place settings, and ensure that all who are invited to the feast have had a role in preparing the experience. This fundraising campaign is being held to raise funds for production and to help with marketing and advertising. I'll be reaching out to my personal and professional networks, in addition to my American Baptist family, to help me to get the word out about this project.

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges for an author is to maintain the editorial schedule and timeline. I am totally dedicated to this project and with the continued support of family and friends, maintaining the project timeline should not be a problem.
