BETTENDORF, IOWA (March 12, 2019) — Churches United of the Quad City Area is pleased to offer the work, words, and compassionate wisdom of Dr N Jonas Ohrberg at our annual Delegate Assembly to be held Thursday, March 28 at Asbury United Methodist Church, 1809 Mississippi Boulevard, Bettendorf.

Dr Ohrberg, founder of The Human Promise: One Heart One Humanity (USA) and The Human Promise Kenya: One Heart One Humanity, will present the keynote address during the program of worship and song to begin at 7PM.

The basic premise of Dr Ohrberg’s work includes fostering awareness and initiating a formal dialogue in the United States, Kenya, and across the world related to cultural, racial, tribal, and ethnic understanding and cooperation. With a deep passion for and belief in positive change, Dr Ohrberg founded The Human Promise to share a message of unity, understanding, and acceptance between diverse communities and peoples and emphasize common humanity in fostering positive change.

Dr Ohrberg earned a PhD in organization, management and leadership from Capella University, has published in national and international academic journals and presented at a number of international speaking engagements. He is a professor with Forbes School of Business and Technology at Ashford University and founder of the Forbes School of Business Center for Diversity and Multicultural Research.

During his weeklong stay in the Quad Cities, Dr Ohrberg will be the guest of Don Wooten on “Saturday Morning Live” Augustana Public Radio WVIK FM 90.3 from 10-11AM on March 23 and “The Gospel Train” on KALA 88.5 FM Sunday, March 24 from 8-8:30AM.
