Race and the Kingdom (Interview with Derwin Gray)

By: Scot McKnight

Racial tension is at a high point.

The embodiment of the Kingdom found in the New Testament and lived out through the Church was to be a vision of unity and diversity. The Church in America, unfortunately, has instead remained one of the most segregated organizations.  Pastor Derwin Gray and Transformation Church is a shining light of how the Church can be the type of diverse community it was intended to be.

Hear about Pastor Derwin’s journey of planting Transformation Church, the challenges they faced from being a multiethnic church, and steps any church can take to become a richer expression of the diverse Kingdom of God.
