Inspirational People, Inspirational Ministry

The Main Objective:

Everything we do is delivered with an eye on bridging the gaps that exist between races, cultures, ethnicities, and different classes of people that has too long separated the Christian church, religions, denominations, doctrines, beliefs and faiths.

In bridging the gaps that exist between [us] we hope to create fluidity in the way [people of faith] relate to one another and enhance the effectiveness and witness of the Gospel.

 

The Hope:

When we think about the destiny and future of Christ followers: we see one race, one people, one church, one heaven, and one God.

The Problem:

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once observed:

"It is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning.”

While Sunday mornings at 11 am continue to be the most segregated hour in America, we all continue to worship under the belief and assumption that God is pleased with us and we’re on our way to His Heaven anyhow. While God knows our heart we are more inclined to weigh the scripture in Jeremiah that admonishes us:

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:9, 10

Ed Stetzer quote:

“People like the idea of diversity. They just don’t like being around different people,” said Ed Stetzer, executive director of the Nashville, Tenn.-based research firm.

“Maybe their sense is that church is the space where they don’t have to worry about issues like this,” he said. But that could be a problem, because, Stetzer said, “If you don’t like diversity, you’re really not going to like heaven.”

The Outlook:

The cultural mantle of the past with regard to black (and white) culture is deeply embedded in the DNA of the black church throughout all kinds of American history. As we work to articulate our roles in profound matters of the past still facing the church today, and embark upon new ones both in the church and political arenas, we’re not saying we have all the answers. We’re only suggesting that we must seek to find the answer and/or explore potential answers together. In order for this to happen we must make sure the kind of platform we create for Christ followers and the Church is one that will resonate with the current state of culture today. Otherwise we risk becoming even more increasingly irrelevant in a time where the light of the church is needed more than ever before.

The Promise:

You can trust our discernment, sensitivity, and authority in matters of faith as we look and work through the lens of creating social awareness and fluidity in areas of cultural intelligence and relevance.
