Show Notes

In this episode, Pete Watts talks with Dr. Don Davis, founder and director of the Urban Ministry Institute about the future of the Black Church. They dive into the Black Church’s past to understand it’s future and how the Black Church has always had to fight to be in the fight. Dr. Davis argues that the future of the Black Church is in missions. He knows that this missional future will be challenging because of what he’s been a part of since 1975 through his work with World Impact in the areas of urban ministry and missions. He has seen how the role of religion has been diminished in black communities and replaced by what Pete Watts calls “inner city mystery cults.” Facing this reality, Pete and Dr. Davis round out the show by discussing how the Black Church can once again become a vital part of the community by engaging in mission work.
