PODCAST | The Role Of The Black Church In The Civil Rights Era With Pastor Kermit Moss
By: Vanderbloemen March 4, 2021
February is Black History Month, and to continue learning about the establishing, evolution, and culture of the black church, we spoke with African American Christian leaders to guide us through the history of the black church and the critical purpose it serves as part of the full Kingdom.
These conversations cover some of the critical events in early US History all the way up to current events in an effort to help us appreciate the roots and development of The Black Church.
In today’s conversation, our Director of Special Initiatives & Operations and Executive Search Consultant, Chantel McHenry spoke with Kermit Moss, Pastor of Christ Church UMC in Paterson, New Jersey and Interim Director, Center for Black Church Studies, Princeton Theological Seminary. They cover the significant impacts that the Civil Rights era had on The Black Church and how the church responded to this critical period in history. Pastor Moss shares how The Black Church shaped the spiritual formation and experience of African American communities in the 1960’s, and he draws insightful comparisons to events from The Civil Rights era to what’s happening in our country today.
At Vanderbloemen, we value constant improvement, and invite you to walk alongside us as we learn more about how to better love and serve the whole church. We hope you enjoy Chantel’s conversation with Pastor Kermit Moss.
