In a two-part presentation, Dr. George Robertson & Dr. David Prince continue our discussions about Race and the Church.

Part 6,2: Dr. David Prince, The Elusive Dream: Pursuing Diversity in Predominantly White Churches. We all embrace the call for the nations to be in our midst confessing Christ as Lord (Gen. 17:4; Matt. 28:16-20; Rom. 10:14-15). But if our context is predominantly white, it is possible? What can we do to ensure others know we love and respect them as image-bearers? How can we demonstrate that we respect their culture?

David is the pastor of Ashland Avenue Baptist Church. He received his M.Div from Southwestern Theological Seminary and his Ph.D from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. In addition to his role at Ashland, he is also an Associate Professor for Christian Preaching and Pastoral Ministry at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.

Dr. Prince has written provocatively on the subject of race and the church. One of his more popular online articles, published at The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, is titled, “Jesus is Not Colorblind: Celebrating Ethnic Diversity in the Local Church.” He has also written, “A New Kind of Racial Profiling.”
