Episode #13 – Shelby Smith on Race and Diversity

Dan and Amy sit down with Shelby Smith. Shelby works on Fellowship’s West Little Rock Campus as a Care Pastor. He has served on Fellowship’s staff for 18 years! Shelby came to a place where he realized he had become complacent when it came to race issues. God put it on his heart to start more conversations about race and encourage believers to step into positive, gospel conversations about differences between people. Our discussion begins by discussing Shelby’s Midweek D Group and some of the discussion that group has had around race issues.

Shelby mentioned studies by Tony Evans and John Piper. These videos can be viewed on RightNow Media. Every person who attends Fellowship can have access to RightNow Media. If you don’t have access and would like to have access, please email Dan Sheaffer at dsheaffer@fellowshiponline.com.
