Hi everyone. My name is Marcus and I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. I have been a Follower/ Disciple of Christ since 2003 and I discovered RZIM Connect several weeks back while at work listening to my favorite podcast, Let My People Think.
I must admit, it is very intimidating to enter a space of discourse like this with graduates from institutions ranging from Oxford to Harvard but my prayer is that I will be welcomed with open arms and learn how to, as A.W. Tozer so eloquently wrote it in the Knowledge of the Holy, speak to the conditions of my listeners with the hope that my message will not only be timeless but timely. My desire is to speak to my own generation in a language they will not only hear but receive through the art of music.
I am looking forward to building and learning how to become a better evangelist/ apologist to a generation that seems to be moving further and further away from God. As a man of African descent, living in America engaged in conversations with other people from various racial backgrounds, who are drawn to various religions such as Orthodox Islam, The Nation of Islam, The Nation of the 5 Percent, and Kemetic orthodoxy (just to name a few), who have no regard for the existence of Christ and the word of God because they believe the book is not accurate or relevant for these days and times.
Thank you for allowing me to connect and I’m looking forward to the journey.
