African American Churches in the PCA

Here is a side of the PCA that many people don't know about -- African American pastors and congregations. What is very encouraging is that these churches are not all inner-city missions. Many are reaching out to the burgeoning black middle class while others are multi-ethnic.

I've had some personal dealings with people involved in this work. Our home church, Covenant Presbyterian Church, in Fayetteville, Georgia helped Redemption Fellowship get established. Its current pastor, Mike Higgins, was also in seminary with me.

Given the large African-American presence here in Michigan I'd love to see our presbytery work and pray to start similar works in Detroit, Flint, Lansing and anywhere else where interested people might be found.
