Michael Schembre, 21, said he wakes up on Sundays, heads to the Tiger Hotel for services at Karis Community Church and wonders what he’s doing wrong.
“You look out, and you see a massive majority of … white, upper-middle-class people. That’s it,” said Schembre, who is a group leader at the church. “And biblically, that’s such a poor representation of the kingdom of God.”
So last night Schembre came to a forum at the Reynolds Journalism Institute looking for answers. He wanted to know what his church could do to make its congregation look more like America.
