Stephen recently met with DC leaders to share Shelbyville residents’ concerns

Pastor Stephen continues to convene local ministers in and around Shelbyville on a weekly basis to discuss the role of faith leaders in helping their congregants grapple with community change. He recently traveled to Washington, DC with his colleague Rev. Kent Lewis to speak with national faith-based organizations about the concerns of long-term residents in communities like Shelbyville – and how to make strides to build greater unity. Hoping to meet again with Imam Mohamed soon, Pastor Stephen is committed to fostering more relationship building in his community. But he stresses the importance of meeting people where they are and not forcing these connections. “It takes time to build trust,” he says, “We’ve got to take it one day at a time.”
