      Faith: Abolishing Apathy, Embracing Empathy

      Let’s face it, the average church’s posture toward the topic of race is that of avoidance. Race has errantly become a politically charged issue, and often those in our congregation’s opinions are more informed by news and the media than the Bible. Many think the conversations necessary to move out of avoidance will be uncomfortable or will in themselves become divisive. In this keynote, Chuck reveals ways the entire Church is called to participate in the work of racial solidarity and healing no matter the perceived discomfort. When we move from apathy to empathy, people will see a Church that points to the love and power of God.

      Faith: The Way Forward is Together

      When were you first made aware of race—your own or that of another person? No matter who you are, you are impacted by race, for better or for worse. For this reason, racism impacts each and every one of us. As Christians, racial reconciliation and inclusion are not side ...

      When were you first made aware of race—your own or that of another person? No matter who you are, you are impacted by race, for better or for worse. For this reason, racism impacts each and every one of us. As Christians, racial reconciliation and inclusion are not side issues; they’re a natural outworking of the Gospel. In this keynote, Chuck outlines three ways we’re called to see beyond our own experiences to a bigger picture of race in our communities.

      Faith: The Necessity of Soul Care

      Leaders are called to care for the souls of others—but what about when all the responsibilities of shepherding others pulls them away from nurturing their own soul? Often that’s when burnout, lack of vision, and ruptured communities occur. The truth is, soul care is as ...

      Leaders are called to care for the souls of others—but what about when all the responsibilities of shepherding others pulls them away from nurturing their own soul? Often that’s when burnout, lack of vision, and ruptured communities occur. The truth is, soul care is as important for the individual as it is for the whole. In this keynote, Chuck will help leaders tap into what activities and rituals restore them, and teach methods for developing sustainable leadership.

      Corporate: Leadership In Uncertain Times

      When you think of someone in authority, what comes to mind? Maybe you envision a corner office with a gatekeeper, a full schedule with no room for meetings, or a “my way or the highway” attitude toward decision-making. If you’ve ever worked for someone who approached ...

      When you think of someone in authority, what comes to mind? Maybe you envision a corner office with a gatekeeper, a full schedule with no room for meetings, or a “my way or the highway” attitude toward decision-making. If you’ve ever worked for someone who approached authority this way, you know how limiting it can feel. Especially in uncertain times, people in your company or organization may be looking for a new kind of authority—one that approaches the position of leadership with empathy. In this talk, Chuck describes three ways that developing empathy and authority can revolutionize the teams you lead.

      About Keynote Speaker Chuck Mingo

      Chuck is the founder and CEO of LivingUNDIVIDED and WorkingUNDIVIDED, a program that takes participants through life-changing moments of racial healing. His desire is to activate people to not only participate in acts of mercy and reconciliation, but to challenge systems of oppression and injustice as well. Launched in 2015 as a ministry of Crossroads Church (Cincinnati), and established in 2020 as an independent nonprofit, UNDIVIDED has grown from a congregational training tool into a national movement with hub cities emerging throughout the country. Chuck’s leadership through UNDIVIDED has inspired and mobilized thousands from diverse backgrounds around the nation and even the world.

      Alongside his passion for justice and racial reconciliation, Chuck’s leadership approach is heavily influenced by a rich history of cross-cultural experiences. Raised in the inner city of Philadelphia, Chuck’s educational opportunities and childhood community provided him the opportunity to engage with people of various backgrounds, races, and lifestyles. Chuck would say that racial solidarity and justice grow through relationships with those who differ from us and are rooted in the character and heart of Jesus.

      After receiving a degree in Business Administration from Duquesne University, Chuck joined the team at Procter & Gamble (P&G). During his tenure at P&G, Chuck led a team of sales representatives in growing their sales by 30 percent in his first year as manager. He developed training programs for both new and existing hires, and worked collaboratively across the company to deliver sales objectives. During his time with P&G, Chuck was known not only for his results, but also for his character. In 2005 he was awarded the inaugural Servant Leadership Award for his outstanding performance as a leader who engages others with humility and empathy.

      In 2007, Chuck felt called to leave his corporate job to join the team at Crossroads Church, one of the largest churches in America. For 13 years he served as a community pastor, communicator, and invaluable member of their leadership team. At Crossroads, Chuck took the same training and people development skills he’d utilized at P&G to grow their sales team, and used them to develop disciples. While his full-time focus is now on leading the UNDIVIDED movement, Chuck and his family are still active in the life of Crossroads Church where he continues in his role as teaching pastor.

      In addition to leading UNDIVIDED, Chuck teaches and consults for churches and organizations around the country on a variety of topics related to race relations and racial justice. Chuck has traveled internationally and seen the impact bias and prejudice can have in both global and localized settings. Part of his life’s work is to help ministry leaders stand in places where people view the church as irrelevant regarding injustice and offer skeptics a different picture of Jesus.

      Chuck is the proud husband of Maria, who he has been married to for the better part of two decades. They have three children, and live in Cincinnati, Ohio.

      Testimonials

      From the moment I first met him up until now as we are gleaning from his leadership here in Chicagoland, it has been clear that for Chuck, UNDIVIDED is a calling. He is passionate and determined as he challenges all of us to follow the way of Jesus in seeking racial solidarity. I can’t think of anyone more suited to do what he is doing. Thank you Chuck!
