I am Dr. A. Charles Ware, founder of Grace Relations. I am passionately concerned about the state of our society and our churches regarding race relations. Over the years, God has taught me much about the Scriptures and their application to conversations of race, ethnicity, and culture.
My passion for racial reconciliation by applying the biblical principle of grace led me to develop our DREAM curriculum and establish Grace Relations. This network exists to equip pastors and other Christian workers to engage in meaningful conversation and collaboration to bridge racial, ethnic, and cultural divides. I believe God is using my decades of experience, research, and study as an urban pastor, counselor, and educator to bring a message of grace to the Christian community.
Because of Him,
Dr. A. Charles Ware
“I want to personally thank you for Grace Relations. I am proud of our team for taking these issues to our membership base, and shining a light on the topic of race and Grace relations. I truly enjoyed your perspective, your transparency, and your outward message of 'LOVE.' It seems so simple, yet it is very needed right now.”

Everyone will know by this that you are my disciples—if you have love for one another. - John 13:35
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age. - Matthew 28:19–20
So pray this way: Our Father in heaven, may your name be honored, may your kingdom come, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. - Matthew 6:9–10
