Dominique DuBois Gilliard is the Director of Racial Righteousness and Reconciliation for the Love Mercy Do Justice (LMDJ) initiative of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). He is the author of Rethinking Incarceration: Advocating for Justice that Restores. Gilliard also serves on the board of directors for the Christian Community Development Association and Evangelicals for Justice. An ordained minister, Gilliard has served in young adult and pastoral ministry in Atlanta, Chicago, and Oakland.

Worship Leader: Genesis Ueligitone

Returning for 2020, Pastor Genesis is the Family Life and Worship Pastor at City View Church in Renton, WA.  She has served in almost every ministry/department, though her primary call is evident through her gift of leading worship and service through youth/young adults ministry, which she has been apart of for 10+ years in various capacities. When she’s not at church, you can usually find her somewhere reading a book, taking a nap or watching HGTV/Food Network next to her husband, Jesse.
