Is your imagination too small? Take a front seat to see what is possible. This Sunday’s guest preacher is The Reverend K. Jason Coker.
Jason grew up in grinding poverty of the Mississippi Delta. Despite overwhelming odds, he graduated from high school, college and went on to earn advanced degrees at Yale and Drew. Jason recently completed a two year term as one of the top four elected board leaders of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. He currently serves as Pastor for Wilton Baptist Church and adjunct lecturer at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut.
With all these credentials, however, he has never forgotten his roots and those on the margins. In 2013, he founded a non-profit organization in his hometown of Shaw, Mississippi. This past summer, Delta Hands for Hope provided nearly 7,000 meals to children of Shaw and over 10,000 meals to children across Mississippi.
I have known Jason 14 years. It has been an honor and privilege to be in ministry together. What I find most intriguing for Plymouth is how Jason’s deep love of Biblical scholarship and his passion for social justice and advocacy found unified expression with his work and ministry in refugee resettlement, rural poverty and racial reconciliation.
Please join me this Sunday to welcome Jason and after worship in the Lounge for conversation around his new book, James in Postcolonial Perspective, called ‘learned and refreshingly stimulating’ and ‘well worth your time.’ Books will be available. –Brigitta Remole
