I know that church planters are supposed to have a target group
I know that this target group should look the same, make the same (money), and act the same.
I know that this approach is somewhat easier because it’s easier to attract similar people
I know that ministry with and for people of diverse backgrounds is difficult.
I believe that God desires people from every nation to be drawn to Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20).
I believe that if on the day of Pentecost the Spirit enabled people to hear of the glory of God in their native tongue then He can do it today (Acts 2:1-13).
I believe that when different people come together for one Person, the world will know about the love of God (John 17:23)
I believe that we can see so much more of God when we seek to know Him beyond our cultural experience (John 4:23).
I believe that Baltimore is primed to see these beliefs become what we all know as our reality.
That’s why I’m grateful for the people in this picture and those who will be a part of the church in Southwest Baltimore. God is drawing people with similar hearts from various backgrounds together for the single purpose of displaying His glory!
