Mission

“Christianity isn’t about telling your story; it’s about creating a story for someone else,”
— Rev William “Paw Paw” Robinson.

In combining my passion for storytelling and my love for Black Methodists for Church Renewal (BMCR) I have taken this quote and made it my life’s mission. As the creator of BlackMethodists.com, I first encountered the transformational power of BMCR as a youth participant in Youth Empowerment Production Program at Grace United Methodist Church in Rochester, NY. A program made possible through the advocacy of BMCR which produces the Community Developers Program at Global Ministries.

My next encounter came when I attended BMCR’s Youth Harambee in Little Rock, AR. At this conference, my relationship with BMCR was solidified. I later become a local caucus, jurisdictional and general board member. It is that love that compelled me to pen an Open Love Letter to BMCR calling for a rededication to our founding principles and purpose. I am dedicated to assisting BMCR move the United Methodist Church to a place where all of the racial-ethnic caucuses are no longer needed because the love of Christ resonates throughout every decision, action or conversation within this church and ultimately the world.

Thanks for visiting my site to view the world through my eyes — I hope you enjoy my site and the work that I’m doing. Got something for me? Get in touch.
