Casey Church is the pastor of Good Medicine Way in Albuquerque, NM. He has been in ministry for three decades as a Native American encouraging a contextualized way of worship. In his personal history, he has had painful experiences of being reprimanded and shunned for expressing his love for God in ways familiar to his cultural traditions. Praise God, he has accepted the call to invite Native Americans into culturally contextualized ways of worshipping Jesus!
Be sure to watch out for news of the launch service of Good Medicine Way on September 13, 2021!

One thought on “Episode 105 – Casey Church”
Great conversation with Casey!! I’m the person who invited him to our retreat next week in Gallup, NM. The facilitators team of Race Relations (all people of color including Navajo brothers and sisters) is meeting there for listening, sharing our stories and begin conversations on healing.
