Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training

It’s almost too good to be true. Thousands of dollars worth of outstanding, timely content is yours with your APCE membership!

The Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE) is excited to unveil a series of webinars produced for us by Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing and Training. The series is hosted by Laura Cheifetz, Assistant Dean of Admissions, Vocation and Stewardship at Vanderbilt Divinity School, and facilitated by Jessica Vasquez Torres, National Program Director at Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing and Training, and Shawna Bowman, pastor of Friendship Presbyterian Church in Chicago. Each webinar includes times of instruction and also responses to questions submitted by APCE members. Also included are a sketchbook created by Shawna, an accomplished artist, and invitations to pause, reflect, and journal following the prompts provided. A benefit of membership, the webinars are available via a password protected page on the APCE website and will be accessible for two years. These resources were made possible through our partnership with the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the PCUSA.

Presbyterian News Service

After years of difficult work, the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE) has a new justice and equity statement. APCE’s Diversity Task Force, which developed the statement, hopes it will help the organization in its effort to become more diverse.


Children’s faith is being formed in everyday moments — taking a walk with mom or dad, being tucked into bed, sharing a meal together.


While many people in their “third thirty” face problems related to health, loneliness and the inevitable slowdown that aging brings on, one constant in their life — and for many people it continues to grow until they depart this earthly realm — is their spirituality.
