Meet Deidra Riggs
We are very excited that Detroit native Deidra Riggs will be returning to the City Gates stage for our 2015 Conference! She will be sharing how we can be agents of reconciliation in our work. Our work environments create common spaces, goals and vocabulary that draw diverse people together and invite relationships. Shared work can create a natural platform for understanding, healing and trust among people groups when Jesus-followers among them approach their everyday work as part of God’s greater mission.
Deidra Riggs is a writer and speaker who claims an undying devotion to disco music, the Motor City, and long bike rides under a big, blue sky. She is managing editor at The High Calling, and a monthly contributor to (in)courage. As founder of JumpingTandem Deidra inspires individuals to pursue the dreams God has uniquely designed for them.
