I have just been listening to a message by my pastor, Tope Koleoso, who was recorded at a recent conference on building a multicultural church. I have become so used to what God has been doing these past couple of years at Jubilee that I sometimes need to remind myself that genuinely racially integrated churches are actually far from common. We truly have a lot to be grateful for. I really think you may well enjoy listening to Tope on this subject. The message can be downloaded or you can listen to it right here:
Tope is a dynamic speaker, and most of the time does not focus on racial issues, preferring to simply get on with preaching the Bible to a church which happens to have different nationalities attending. If you want to hear more of him, you can visit the website of the church I attend where you will also find sermons by others, including myself. Tope has also preached at a number of other churches, and some of them have put his messages online:
- Tope Koleoso at City Hope Church, Bermondsey—”Celebrating Diversity: Move on From Integrating Multiculture to Love and Acceptance,” 10th February 2008.
- Tope Koleoso at Christ Church, London—”Regaining Refreshing (Acts 3),” 15th April 2007.
- Tope Koleoso at Church of Christ the King, Brighton—”Godliness is Profitable For All Time” and “Pursuing the Wonderful God,” December 2006.
