What is Bar Theology?
Bar Theology is not your average theological discussion. Join us at Busboys and Poets where you'll get honest opinions and straight talk about faith, love, work and your daily life experiences. Bar Theology will give you the space to meet other people asking big questions and make new friends to keep the discussion going. We welcome all people, of all regions, to bring their whole self and join us in this ongoing dialogue.
Good beer. Good conversation. Bar Theology.

Through her previous experiences as a youth minister in the South Bronx and a community organizer for various nonprofits and campaigns—including Campaign for Change, the Jubilee U.S.A.
