Show Notes

In this episode of We Are Vineyard, Jay chats with Gary Dawkins about growing up in a Black Baptist Church in Baltimore and the practical intersection of church and neighborhood.  Gary talks about the Holy Spirit encounter that convinced him Jesus was real, the roundabout way he found himself in a Vineyard Church, and the powerful moment he fell in love with the Vineyard Movement. Finally, Gary shares where he’s seen progress in the Vineyard regarding racial equity and where he still sees the need for breakthrough. 

Gary Dawkins is a pastor, public communicator, and community leader who earned his MBA from Syracuse University and Master of Science in Communications Management from Morgan State University, a historically black university (HBCU). He serves as Lead Pastor of the Mercy Vineyard Church in Minneapolis, MN. 

He is also passionate about justice for the marginalized and uplifting his community. Gary cares and wants to see the marginalized flourish in every area of life. 

Gary is a former media professional and educator, who is now captivated by helping people grow in their faith and relationships. He is especially passionate about developing a lasting discipleship culture that includes acts of service, social justice, and cultural competency.

He is the husband of the beautiful LeKita Scott Dawkins and father to the brilliant Grace. They love cooking together and playing Monopoly. Game on!
