    About This Organization

    The mission of Reconciliation Church is to bring restoration of identity, purpose, and destiny in Jesus Christ through preaching His gospel, teaching God’s Word, and making disciples.

    Reconciliation church not only bears the name “reconciliation,” they embody it in their history and life. Reconciliation Church emerged from a 51-year-old Dutch Reformed congregation that desired to meet the challenge of being a homogenous congregation in a neighborhood that had transitioned from a predominantly Dutch community into a predominantly African-American community. To meet this challenge, the congregation decided to “stay and change.”

    After years of soft attempts to change and multiple pastor turnovers, the congregation hired Glen McCarthy in 2015, an African American pastor with a background in school turnaround and community engagement, to lead Reconciliation church towards their goal to change and reach their neighborhood and community.

    Reconciliation church desires to create a free-flowing worship environment where adoration, celebration, and exhortation take place in an orderly manner.
