Texas Pastor Gives Virtual Program On Black Churches
Grace College hosted a virtual Black History Month program Tuesday featuring Pastor Aaron Moore from Dallas, Texas.
Moore is the pastor of adult ministries at Concord Church in Dallas and has a Master of Arts in Christian education from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Master of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
The program was sponsored by Grace College’s history and political science program, the Department of Humanities and the Committee for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
Director of Grace College’s history and political science program, Dr. Jared Burkholder, hosted the informal interview Tuesday and said Moore is leading the Concord Church in a course of church history that provides people with a historically accurate depiction of prominent African American churches in history.
Moore said his own history compelled him to begin the course.
“One of the things I noticed as I took church history, I noticed that there were some factors, elements of the African American church that were left out,” Moore said. “I wanted to put on a body of curriculum that was very diverse but provided a balanced diet just for Christian discipleship.”
