We talked with Dennae about her involvement in multi-ethnic church planting in Phoenix, AZ, the turbulent season for her church before and right after the 2016 election, and how the last four years have led them to a much deeper solidarity together.
She’s written a book, Healing Prayers and Meditations to Resist a Violent World, that records prayers a network of church planters and pastors in Phoenix have prayed together over the past several summers. These beautiful, honest, and profound meditations give voice to the prayerful cries arising from living in a racially and spiritually divided world.
Dennae also is the Executive Director of Surge Network, a movement of local churches putting Jesus on display by equipping, reconciling, and activating God’s people in Arizona.
