Born into Crisis, Nurtured by Community Organizing

Join us this Sunday for a very special service! This Sunday we have Rev. Kenneth Nixon as our guest preacher. Among other things, Rev. Nixon is a community organizer with VOICE in Fairfax County, working to advocate for better mental health support systems for adults and youth. He is also the author of the book Born into Crisis, chronicling his experiences growing up with a mother with mental illness and issuing a societal call to action for improving America’s mental health systems. You don’t want to miss this!

NOTE: VOICE is offering a catered lunch immediately after the service in gratitude for Accotinkers showing up at VOICE’s event in July advocating for mental health reform with police chiefs, hospital leaders, and Virginia’s governor.

Kenneth Nixon Jr. is an African American Baptist Minister, a Virginia Court Certified Mediator, and the founder of True Dynamics; a coaching, counseling, and conflict resolution practice. Kenneth specializes in relationship coaching, workplace conflict resolution, performance management training, and Circuit Court Family Mediation. Kenneth has been an outspoken leader in the mental health community and has worked to break the stigma surrounding mental illness as a clergy leader and community organizer for the Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement (VOICE).
