Fitch is in Canada so Mike takes over the podcast!!!! He sits down with Jonathan “Pastah J” Brooks to talk about his new book “Church Forsaken: Practicing Presence in Neglected Neighborhoods.”
Pastah J leads Canaan Community Church in West Englewood, Chicago. They discuss the history of Englewood, community development principles, and what the buzzword “presence” actually means. This book does a fantastic job weaving in principles of the missional church and community development. You can purchase it here or find Pastah J at the CCDA conference this week in Chicago!
