Ken Fentress will speak on Racial Reconciliation for SNT on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 4:30pm

WEST CHESTER - Ken Fentress, Senior Pastor of Mostrose Baptist Church, will speak for the March 2017 Sunday Night Theology (SNT) at The Journey Church of West Chester, PA on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 4:30pm.

As the racial tension across the nation continues to rise, how is the Church of Jesus Christ to respond to the heightened sense of abuse and alienation experienced by so many minorities? Recent incidents and marches across the country reveal a deep division among people of different socio-economic and racial communities. Christ’s Church is made up of men and women from many different people and every people group from all regions of the earth. Yet, when so many people are hurt and confused in the face of such overt insults and actions that polarize and reduce people to mere pawns in a political machine, how can the local church heal and sustain those who suffer by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Ken Fentress, the senior pastor of the Montrose Baptist Church in Rockville, Maryland, is also a distinguished theologian who has sought to heal racial wounds by the power of the Holy Scripture. Throughout his ministry, he has been called upon by leaders both in and out of the Church to address racism, strife, and division in areas where violence and hatred have taken root. Fentress' talk — Racial Reconciliation, the Gospel, and the Local Church — will focus on race relations and the Christian faith.

“Ken is uniquely gifted to help our church and community at this time to address so many pressing issues our nation at this time,” stated Raymond Johnson, Lead Pastor of The Journey Church. “We look forward to welcoming Ken to our church and community to help us as we seek to live faithfully in obedience to the Gospel of Christ.”
