Theme for 2017: "Who Is An American?"

Our speaker this year, Jim Bear Jacobs will explore current and historical views of what it is to be an American, an immigrant, and/or a refugee, and the ways that race enters into the discussion, as well as the need to take into account the indigenous perspective on these issues.

 

Jim Bear Jacobs was born in 1977 in St. Paul, MN. He is a member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Nation, an American Indian tribe located in central Wisconsin. He has degrees in Pastoral Studies and Christian Theology and has served various churches as youth minister, adult Christian educator, and director of Men’s Ministries.
