Summit on Race Relations

On a weekend in late September, Senior Pastor Rich Nathan and campus pastor Dr. Charles Montgomery preached a joint sermon on  building a multi-ethnic church. Their church, Vineyard Columbus, has over the last decade transformed itself from a standard overly-white evangelical church into a congregation representing nearly 100 nations.

In this sermon, the two men take turns telling their stories of how racial reconciliation became important to them. They talk about the positives that have come from a commitment to building a multi-ethnic congregation, as well as the sacrifices that each had to make as a result of that commitment.  It was a fascinating and eye-opening event.
