who we are
Faith & Prejudice is a move of God. We began as a vision placed in the heart of our Founder, Nona Jones, while on a morning run on June 1, 2020. She was in prayer due to the unrest gripping the United States after the murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020. “Lord, instead of fighting each other, how do we defeat racism?” As tears rolled down her face, she heard the Lord say, “the power doesn’t lie in Congress; the power lies in my Church. Racism is a spirit. Cast it down.”
When she returned home from her run, she began to search the internet and learned that while 30% of Americans identify as Republican and 31% identify as Democrat, 65% of Americans identify as Christian; more than both major political parties combined. It was at that moment that she realized what God was saying; change won’t happen in Congress until it first happens in the heart of the Church. The Faith & Prejudice movement was created to unite the Church through education and inspiration so that we can mobilize and defeat racism once and for all.
Faith & Prejudice is not simply an organization; it is a movement of Christians who are committed to living a life of radical love and humility as demonstrated by Jesus Christ; the type of love and humility that confronts and dismantles racism in America once and for all. We exist to concentrate the spiritual power it requires to eradicate the demonic spirit of racism from the United States.
Our goal is to unite Christians across color lines and denominations to confront the prejudices that have limited our ability to listen and learn so that we can mobilize. We desire to see the power of God bring healing to this land and, as such, we commit to walk humbly before God, pray and seek his face and turn from our wicked ways.
