Pursuing Racial Unity in Church
The mission of Colorblind is to pursue racial reconciliation and unity in the Church in North America through servant love (John 13) across the racial barrier. Moreover, by building unity in the church, we demonstrate Christ’s love among the faithful to the world. Through our love, they will see the love of Christ and be drawn to faith in Him (John 17) changing the church and then impacting the nation.
To accomplish this, Colorblind is asking you to take the survey below about your racial experience in the church. By gathering this data, We will, over time, be able to develop materials and programs to help end this unnecessary and damaging division. Brothers and sisters, racial unity needs to be normative for the church regardless of the state of racial equality in the larger culture. We should be unity’s leading voice and its most significant example. Please help by following the link below to fill out our survey.
If you are an African American pastor or church leader (elder, deacon, teacher, etc.), I would like to interview you either in person if you are near Northwestern Virginia or by phone if you are further away. How can you convey your insights and experiences to your white brothers and sisters? To schedule an interview, please click on the link below.
Thank you for your interest--I genuinely believe achieving racial unity in the North American Church is within reach.
By crossing this divide and serving each other in love, the church of Jesus Christ will change the nation.
Born in 1963 in rural Virginia, I grew up in a working-class home with my mom, dad, and sister. Although they all live in North Carolina now, we remain close. I own a home in the little town of Strasburg, VA two blocks from where I grew up. I have a BA in History and have worked in professional sales for about thirty years. I have three daughters who are all grown, gone and married, and my oldest has three daughters of her own. I met the Lord Jesus Christ Labor Day weekend 1990 profoundly impacting my life in so many ways. I am a member of Fellowship Bible Church in Winchester, VA and have been since 1993. My earnest prayer and desire is to see the church experience the unity she is called to and in particular unity among the races. Through doing so, we will change this nation.
“I do not pray for these alone...”
"I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
