The depictions of a “white Jesus” has become a stumbling block in the furthering of the gospel in urban communities, and we are paying the price. Many in the black community are leaving the church and are now turning to other cults and religions as a result.

In the height of racial tensions, it is more important than ever to present Jesus in his proper context. We will also discuss what the black community found in their search for the new MLK and the rise of Hebrew Israelites.

This was the last of four workshops presented at Legacy Conference 2016 for the Cultural Engagement Track.

The Legacy Conference is almost here, and we need your help to raise $25,000. Reaching this goal will empower us to continue to make the conference affordable for our targeted urban, young adult audience.

Help us continue to make disciples, and leave a legacy for the next generation by making a gift today. Donate now.
