The practicum is based on Emmerich’s faith-based stewardship and reconciliation work on Tangier Island shown in her film When Heaven Meets Earth: A Faithful Few Changed Everything and her racial reconciliation work in Berlin, Maryland shown in her trailer film “Minority Outreach in Berlin, MD.” Emmerich will also share the application of the principles to her workforce and leadership development work with the CHEE (Coalition for Hope and Excellence in Education) and BASF in Kankakee. Participants will learn methods and principles immediately applicable to their communities, businesses and churches.
