Theology Underground is a series of guided conversations about how culture, identity, and race impact the way we live out our faith and beliefs. Each month we will engage with a different cultural community and learn about their unique and creative ways of imagining God and living out their faith. Campus partners across various identities will serve as conversation partners.
