African-Americans in Missions


African-Americans are a part of a unique story in foreign missions that is seldom told. In this talk, originally given at CROSS, Tim steps into this rich history and discusses African-American’s involvement in missions. How is the black church supporting missions today? Why (or why not) is this an area of weakness for the black church? Come on up on the porch and hear Tim as he celebrates God’s grace in the past and speaks of how God may mightily send African-Americans in the future.
