Faithful Christian mission includes more than preaching. In his book Where the Cross Meets the Street, Noel Castellanos describes his dissatisfaction with the proclamation-only approach and looks at the life of Jesus for a more holistic way to engage our neighborhoods. He believes in the cross God enters our suffering and cares for the vulnerable, and the Christian's duty is to do the same. This entails moving into the neighborhood, engaging both proclamation and formation, demonstrating compassion, seeking restoration and development, and confronting injustice where it may be found. In this episode, Noel joins William to discuss how the radical story of the cross should shape the Church's presence in our communities.

Noel serves as the President of the Christian Community Development Association.

In this episode, Leroy Barber asks, “If God had to come close in the incarnation… what makes us think we can do [Christianity] from afar?” Leroy authored the book Embrace: God’s Radical Shalom for a Divided World and serves as the Executive Director for The Voices Project.
