Good luck with that. LOL! Ronnie Becton has a great church and a beautiful new building, but I don't know about culturally diverse. It didn't use to be, but may be more so now.

I looked on the UPCI.org directory and found this church - not sure how diverse it is though.

Wouldn't that be a kick in the head?
to be located on a street named Trinity or in a town named Trinity.

Re: Diverse UPCI Church Nashville??

I have visited Becton's church in Nashville and The Turning Point church. I think both were pretty white although there were a few folks of color there. I don't know about Zuniga's church in the Gallatin area. At least a few years ago it was supposed to be the happening church in the Nashville area. I know they are in the middle of a building program and have sold their existing facility but are still having services in it. This is causing them to have just one service on Sunday and at a time the new church is not using it. You would have to check their website for details.

You ought to visit Christ Church! It is just in the last few years starting to be culturely diverse and it doesn't show up yet on the platform. In the last few years have made an outreach to the Spanish speaking folks, Kurds, and some other ethnic group (I have forgotten which) that is emigrating to Nashville at a pretty big rate. They had something like 50-70 of this last group all start coming to church at once so had special classes for them as most had zero Christian background but were open and interested because of one older lady in the group who had been witnessed to and became a Christian in a refugee camp in some country.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

Re: Diverse UPCI Church Nashville??

Why should one be worried about the race makeup of a church in order to attend. If it is a church teaching the doctrines of Christ they are your brother and sister in the Lord. Does that change because of race?

It matters! Most people don't want to be apart of a congregation they don't feel welcome. Unfortunately, in many apostolic churches racism still exists. I know from experience.

I believe this church is very liberal. The Bectons attended a concert a few weeks ago at a local bar in support of their friends who are embarking on a Rock Country Career. Free alcohol was served to everyone at "The Exit Inn" Many of their church members attended as well.
