Bonus Episode - What does it look like for white Christians to be allies in the battle against systemic injustice and racism? How can Christians champion the cause from a humble, listening posture? What does it look like to pursue reconciliation as a lifestyle?
We interview Matt McGue to discuss these questions. He's the director of church planting and founding/campus pastor at Cumberland Community Church’s new Douglasville (Atlanta), GA, campus, a multiethnic church plant. In 2004, Matt planted a multiethnic church in Charlotte, NC. Following that, God called him to plant another diverse, gospel-centered, difference-making church; this time in the Deep South. In both cases, Matt partnered with Stadia; and in 2014, One Church was launched in Jackson, MS. He’s been coached by Mark DeYmaz and mentored by Dr. John Perkins, founder of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), author, civil rights veteran, and international authority on diversity and reconciliation.
