About the Luncheon

Since 1991, BJC has brought together friends and supporters of religious liberty for a time of fellowship and updates on the latest news out of Washington. In 2020 and 2021, our luncheon was a virtual event, broadcast to homes across the country. In 2022, we are returning to an in-person event.

Ticket sales for the 2022 event will end June 19.

2021 Luncheon: Fierce Freedom with the Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis

On June 18, 2021, BJC broadcast a virtual lunchtime event for religious liberty advocates and supporters — and even those simply curious about this issue — across the country. Our speaker was the Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, an author, activist and public theologian who serves as the Senior Minister of Middle Collegiate Church in New York City. The program included a panel discussion with the Rev. Robin Anderson, co-pastor of Commonwealth Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia; the Rev. Keisha I. Patrick, a 2019 BJC Fellow; and Dr. Andrew Gardner, a BJC Board member who is a visiting faculty associate in American Religious History at Hartford Seminary.
