Bishop Yvette Flunder to be Regional Meeting Theme Speaker

Yvette Flunder

We’re excited to announce that Rev. Dr. Yvette Flunder, Presiding Bishop of The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries will be our Theme Presenter at the Chinook Winds Online Regional Gathering from September 15-17.

Rev. Dr. Flunder, a San Francisco native, has served her call through prophetic action and ministry for justice for over 30 years. Her call to “blend proclamation, worship, service and advocacy on behalf of those most marginalized in church and in society” led to the founding of the City of Refuge United Church of Christ in 1991. In 2003, Rev. Dr. Flunder was consecrated Presiding Bishop of The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries, a multi-denominational coalition of over 100 primarily African American Christian leaders and laity. She is on the Board of Starr King School for the Ministry and DEMOS and has taught at many theological schools. She is a graduate of the Certificate of Ministry and Master of Arts programs at Pacific School of Religion and received her Doctor of Ministry from San Francisco Theological Seminary. She is an award-winning gospel music artist and author of Where the Edge Gathers: A Theology of Homiletic and Radical Inclusion.
      Registration for the Chinook Winds Regional Meeting will go online on August 24. If your Community of Faith’s Regional Representatives have changed in recent months, please provide an update HERE. Registration will go out directly to Regional Representatives and Ministry Personnel.
