Dr. J. Randy Grimes
The Gardner C. Taylor Scholars: Prophetic Leadership – Social Justice and Political Action.
The purpose of this Focus Group is to empower preachers and pastors to fulfill the prophetic mantle placed upon them by way of their ministerial calling. This will be done through an examination of the prophetic preaching tradition within the Scriptures as well as within the history of the African American Church. Focus will be given to the historical background and contemporary relevance of both preaching and ministry that address the social and political realities of our time.
Dr. Grimes is Senior Pastor and District Superintendent with Open Bible Churches, and Church Health Consultant and Senior Pastor at Open Bible Christian in Dayton, OH.
