10 Studies from Black Ministry Leaders

10 Studies from Black Ministry Leaders


The Black Church is more than just the people—it serves as a specific expression of the Christian faith that we should not only appreciate but glean from.

The origins, traditions, and stories within the legacy of the Black Church offer a perspective of Christian history that many times gets lost and, therefore, so do its voices.

At RightNow Media, we not only value diversity but believe that Black ministry leaders have a unique perspective on Christian history and the gospel. Their experience and unique history can help all of us see the sustaining grace and deliverance of God in a special way. In our extensive library, you’ll find Black teachers and speakers in series covering race relations in the church, books of the Bible, Christian living, and even faith in the workplace.

Studies on Race Relations and Black Christian History

Through Eyes of Color

Lisa Fields

Urban Apologetics

Eric Mason

Many young people in the Black community are disinterested in Christianity, feeling like the church strips them of their dignity rather than reminding them of their God-given identity. As a result, they turn to ethnocentric ideologies, revisionist history, conspiracy theories, and mystic cults. In this series, Dr. Eric Mason addresses twenty big questions unique to the Black church.

God’s Uncommon Man

Truth and Love

Jonathan Evans

In this series, Jonathan Evans will walk students through the parables in Luke to teach what it looks like for God to rule our lives. Though a life sold out for Christ might look backward to everyone else, it actually points us back to how God intended our lives to be when he first created us.

Consider watching through one of these series with your small group or as a personal study. We want you to grow closer to God and thrive in your community with the help of diverse voices. God has given us all a voice, and if we want the church to flourish, we must lift every voice.
