The Northern Piedmont Clergy Officers invite you to join them in a day of preaching exploration led by Rev. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. We hope our time with Jonathan will help us explore our call to be prophets in this age of divided places, spaces, and hearts. Jonathan is a spiritual writer, preacher and native of North Carolina.
More about Rev. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove: In 2003, Jonathan and his wife Leah founded the Rutba House, a house of hospitality where the formerly homeless are welcomed into community with the formerly housed to eat, pray, and share life together. Jonathan directs the School for Conversion, a nonprofit that has grown out of the life of Rutba House to pursue beloved community with kids in their neighborhood and in community-based education around the country. Jonathan is also an Associate Minister at the historically black St. Johns Missionary Baptist Church.
Jonathan is a co-compiler of the celebrated Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals, and is the author of several books on Christian spirituality, including Reconstructing the Gospel, Strangers at My Door, The Awakening of Hope, The Wisdom of Stability, and The New Monasticism. He is also co-author, with Reverend Dr. William Barber II, of The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement.
Jonathan is an evangelical Christian who connects with the broad spiritual tradition and its monastic witnesses and a leader in the New Monasticism movement. He speaks often about emerging Christianity to churches and conferences across the denominational spectrum and has given lectures at dozens of universities and seminaries, including Calvin College, Bethel University, Duke University, Swarthmore College, St. John’s University, DePaul University, and Baylor University.
