Pastors, One Black and the Other White Join Efforts in New Book on “Race and God”


Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Pastor Wayne Francis.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with Pastor Wayne Francis about his Amazon bestselling book.
According to a statement, “For years, Pastors John Siebeling and Wayne Francis have led thriving congregations that are the embodiment of diversity; Siebeling in Memphis and Francis in New York City. Many churches and leaders have sought their counsel, hoping to emulate their success.
“At the height of the Black Lives Matter protests in Summer 2020, they pooled their insights and experiences to help others facilitate conversations about racism.
“The guide they developed is the basis of God and Race.
Siebeling and Francis examine the White-Black tension from both perspectives and answer all the uncomfortable questions we’re afraid to ask—regarding ourselves, our families, our work and relationships, and the church. Most important, they provide practical steps anyone can take to become part of the solution.
“Whether you are a church leader or just a caring person who wants to make a difference, God and Race provides inspiration and guidance to help you become an agent of reconciliation and change. These two wise pastors teach you how to find your voice and join in healing, to help bring our divided communities together with open minds, open hearts, and open hands.
“Many Christian books on race either do not ask the hard questions or, if they do, speak as critics outside the mainstream church. Siebeling and Francis probe the meaning of racial reconciliation and reveal how the church can be a positive and effective leader to move us forward, beyond hate and injustice, to equality and love.“About the authors:
“John Siebeling is the founding and senior pastor of The Life Church based in Memphis, Tennessee, a thriving, diverse body of believers committed to serving people, developing leaders, and impacting generations. John serves as a founding board member of the Association of Related Churches and is the author of several books, including Fresh Start with God and Worry-Free Finances. He and his wife, Leslie, live in Memphis, Tennessee and serve together with their two adult children, Anna and Mark.
“Wayne Francis leads the New York City location of The Life Church and was the founder and lead pastor of the former Authentic Church, which merged with The Life Church in early 2020. Wayne and his wife, Claudene, have been married for twenty years and have two beautiful teenage daughters, Haleigh and Ryleigh.”
