Here are a few ways to learn more about Horton and get a taste of the insights he will bring to our conference in February.
Animosity, distrust, and hostility among believers from the various ethnicities have always existed in American history—and American church history. If we desire to pursue true healing between ethnicities, then our focus as the church in America should be to remove animosity, distrust, and hostility en masse. I’m not talking about ridding society of such ills—that is not possible. But it is possible within the family of God—among churches made up of Holy Spirit-indwelling believers! When this happens, legitimate ethnic conciliation will become a present reality. And I truly believe that the American church stands at the threshold of become the first generation to actively present ethnic conciliation to the American landscape.

“Why You Should Study Church History”
A key quote:
“A generous heart walks in victory over greed. Perhaps maybe we would see some of the social and vocational untouchables in our day coming to faith if there was a culture of generosity present in the people of God. Because Jesus knew that as he adopts them he’s gonna place them in families that are gonna love them and take care of them.”
