In addition to working among Muslim refugees in Memphis, I am the Director of Urban Theological Studies at Memphis College of Urban and Theological Studies at Union University. 99% of our students are Black. Most of our students are over the age of 40. Many of our students are the first in their lineage to ever pursue a college education. I have one foot in Ministry among Muslims and one foot in the inner city. My wife and I spent 21 years with the International Mission Board. Most of that time was in Central Asia.
