Words can unite us or deepen our divide. Many of us carry the weight of broken relationships as we navigate life. Burying the past, we become guarded in our relationships. Even when we are whole, we come across so many broken relationships in our everyday lives. The path to reconciliation is possible. We believe in a world where people can have conflict, share different vantage points, and still interact in equitable ways.
Finding a safe place to share openly can be very difficult. Reachable Reconciliation offers group sessions called “The Bridge” that are constructed to hold space for these stories, while trained facilitators guide us toward tangible action steps. Built as a practitioner’s guide toward equality and unity, Reachable Reconciliation offers 5 essential principles key to bridging gaps of division and disparity. This group session format works in business, church, school, neighborhood or familial settings.
Reachable Reconciliation offers “The Bridge” as a 5 week cohort best experienced in groups of 8-12. Each week is centered on the 5 R’s of Reachable Reconciliation. For a larger group experience please contact us HERE.
Each 8-12 person group session is hosted on a digital platform and will be facilitated by an RR certified trainer. In person training is available by request. In addition to the 5 week cohort, each group session leader will have access to 2 coaching sessions of up to 60 minutes with the assigned trainer. These sessions are focused on building rapport, setting expectations, and defining clear next steps.
2020 was one of the most traumatizing years of many of our lives. Hundreds of men and women found peace through the Reachable Reconciliation group session.
Here's What Everyone Else is Saying
Stacey & Delarisco Sumler
"Fred, Your message and your vision is inspiring. We're honored to call you our friend and can't wait to follow along on your journey of connecting communities and doing the great things that God has inspired you to do. You're an amazing person and you're going to do amazing things! We love ya!"
Jane Angha, Fort Myers, Florida
“ I know that I will never fully comprehend the damage that systemic race issues have caused in people, communities and one’s own worldview. But I can learn, change my behavior and share what I am learning with others - so together we can make lasting changes…in ourselves, homes, schools, work places and our communities. The Reachable Reconciliation experience was powerful, heart-breaking and just in time.”
Andy Breckwoldt, Houston, Texas
“Reachable Reconciliation was a game-changer for me. I was feeling called to do something ,but overwhelmed and struggling with how to make a difference. I discovered (with a little help from Fred and others in my cohort) that progress was within my grasp- by simply starting with the people around me and taking one thoughtful step at a time. I am excited to see where it will lead.”
Matt Robinson, Lead Minister, Parkside Christian Church
"Several times, Fred has blessed our church with his wisdom and guidance. He is an intuitive and insightful leader. He is gifted in being able to see the invisible lines drawn and guide us toward reconciliation in very difficult situations. He's also helped our staff become a more supportive and understanding team while challenging us to step out of our comfort zone. I am so thankful for his giftings and his friendship."
Josh Ganados, Director of Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Twin Cities Youth Organization
"The Reachable Reconciliation cohort helped our organization and team develop skills, a plan and a model for what reconciliation can look like within our team. Fred and Chris are top notch facilitators and teachers that use narratives, questions, and problem solving to help teams deal with the uncomfortable and often unaddressed conflict that can demotivate, deflate and disrupt teams and individuals. Where we previously had made attempts that too often led to more frustration or hurt, Fred and Chris offered a different and proven path. Reachable Reconciliation will encourage your team to engage in reconciliation, equip them with a framework and tools, and unite your team as they listen, learn and act."
