Life and ministry with people on the margins

Carey Conversations seek to demonstrate how the Bible and theology can speak to the complex issues facing the church today. The next conversation takes place in a couple weeks and features Bob and Gracie Ekbald, founders of Tierra Nueva (New Earth) in Washington, a ministry that seeks liberation and transformation. 

Bob and Gracie have a deep sense of call to live and minister with people whom mainstream society excludes--migrants, prisoners, addicts, gang members. All of us who long for a more authentic participation in Jesus’ ministry of love, justice, and liberation will be inspired as we explore with Bob and Gracie what they have learned as they have followed Jesus to the margins. Learn more about this Carey Conversation on our website.

When: Thursday, 9 June
Where: Carey Baptist College
  • 7.30pm Mihi 
  • 7.45pm Interview with Bob and Gracie Ekbald
