We often want our ministries to move fast and grow quickly, but José Humphreys would rather see a leaders learn how to show up, be present, and stay put. In this episode we talk with José about a theology or stability, fidelity, and mutual submission, and the challenges of leading a multicultural church in East Harlem for the long haul.
José Humphreys is a facilitator and pastor of Metro Hope Covenant Church, a multiethnic and multicultural church in East Harlem, New York City. He is also a social worker, consultant and author. Humphreys is involved in shalom-making in New York City through facilitating conversation, contemplation, and action across social, economic, cultural, and theological boundaries.
