CommuniTea with Rev. Selena Johnson "Is Christ Divided?"
July 7, 12:30pm
Rev. Selena M. Johnson has been serving in the Baltimore-Washington Conference since 2012. Pastor Selena, as she likes to be called, has served four very unique and wonderful congregations since that time. She currently serves as senior pastor at Mount Zion UMC (Georgetown) in Washington, DC, where she was appointed in July of 2019. Pastor Selena's spiritual gifts include preaching, teaching, and evangelism. Pastor Selena has long felt called to the ministry of racial healing in America. One prayer she has is that the body of Christ would celebrate diversity at a time when people are so afraid of anyone not like themselves.This is why she is not afraid to speak about this issue especially as relates to faith and the church. In 2006 her first book, The Sin of Racism: How to be Set Free was published. Pastor Selena will address the great racial divide in the church: "Is Christ Divided?"
