faith & race resources

"Building a multiethnic family of faith on mission with King Jesus" is no simple task, but thankfully, we have not been left alone. We can look to the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit, and to brothers and sisters that have gone before us in similar work us for wisdom. Here at City Fellowship, we want to "equip the saints for the work of the ministry" (Ephesians 4:12).  These resources have been especially challenging and encouraging for our leadership and we pray they'll be the same for you as you continue on your discipleship journey. Not all of the following resources deal directly with race or fully represent the doctrine and practice of City Fellowship, but they can help us become the type of people that can engage complex topics with grace and truth. Check out our list and let us know what you're learning!
