A mission of mutual inconveniencing

The church doesn’t have a mission. Church is mission, embodying God’s “fullness of life” economy in Christ for all and living this out in partnership. While a Caribbean “multiple hybrid belonger,” I am at home in the United Reformed Church (URC) in the United Kingdom, actively involved in the global and intercultural work of our mission department. The “world,” in all of its diversity, is everywhere! Linking global, intercultural and missional is significant.

Changing demographics bring revitalization to congregation Saint Paul Presbyterian Church began its ministry in southwest Houston 60 years ago as a suburban congregation. About 25 years later Saint Paul gladly welcomed its first African-immigrant members. As the neighborhood changed and the original congregation began to age, African immigrants began to revitalize the church. When Dr. Kevin R. Boyd was called as pastor in 2003, Saint Paul was facing the challenges of changing demographics. He encouraged Saint Paul’s fledgling African choir, Calabash, to be part of every service. Today the choir, composed of members from numerous African countries, leads God’s people weekly in praise, alongside a traditional choir as well as a praise band.
