In this episode of We Are Vineyard, Jay chats with Gary Dawkins about growing up in a Black Baptist Church in Baltimore and the practical intersection of church and neighborhood.

Finally, Gary shares where he’s seen progress in the Vineyard regarding racial equity and where he still sees the need for breakthrough.
