How has this man of God made church cool for millennials in the entertainment industry?
Touré Roberts is the founder of One Church International, one of the fastest growing churches in Los Angeles with a considerable portion of his congregation being young professionals in the entertainment industry. Maybe it’s Robert’s unconventional look that draws in millennials by the masses. He comfortably wears baseball caps, jeans and sneakers in church and in his everyday life and Roberts is always candid with his congregation.
Though One Church International is the spiritual home of thousands every week, the church initially had only a few dozen members. When asked how he knew that he was supposed to keep going as opposed to closing the church, Roberts comments, “In 2002, God said plant the church and he showed me a vision of what the church would look like. From 2002 until now, I didn’t see the fullness of what He said but you have to rely on what you heard. Life is about sowing and reaping. One of the difficult things with that process is when you sow something, you put it in the ground and that thing is invisible and it’s not up to you to determine when that seed is going to become the tree that you saw in your vision.”
