Together at the Table: Leading a Culturally, Economically, and Racially Diverse Church
Presented by Brittany Hunt. During the last two years, the leadership at Spindle City Vineyard moved from an impoverished church of 20 adults and 2 children, most of whom were in poverty and disabled, to a church of 70 adults and 20 children. The Holy Spirit challenged our leadership to steward well the various abilities, backgrounds, and cultures in a way that honored each individual’s call in the Kingdom. This workshop will focus on how leadership can learn to incorporate members from a wide variety of backgrounds into the fold because “Everybody Plays” in the Vineyard.
Brittney Hunt has been on staff with Spindle City Vineyard since September 2010. She started as the church administrator and in 2015 responded to the calling on her life to pastor. She is currently enrolled in Liberty University, where she is pursuing her Masters in Divinity. She is a nationally certified Bridges Out of Poverty trainer. Being actively engaged in the community is important to Brittney, so alongside her time at the church, she also works part-time for the local school district as a parent liaison, serves on the Cohoes Youth Advisory and Cohoes Bridges Out of Poverty boards, and is a member of the multi-denominational local clergy association. Her passion is to build churches in often ignored or troubled communities, where every single member is valued for who they are, and is encouraged to grow and use the talents that God has placed in them.
