MY LATEST RESEARCH
How We Think Narratively Pt.1
As a researcher I am interested in the identity formation of communities for social transformation. Particularly I am interested in the Black church’s identity formation for social transformation. How do we, the church, live up to and live out our obligation to step into the world with a transforming mission?
Coming Into My Own!
