This book assembles a knowledge base of the cross-cultural congregation-to-congregation relationship of two local churches: Madison square Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the Providence Baptist Church in Monrovia, Liberia.

Samuel Broomfield Reeves, Jr.

Samuel Broomfield Reeves, Jr. is Adjunct Instructor at Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary, Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa and Co-Pastor of Madison Square Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan. The author holds a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Princeton Theological Seminary.

Dr. Samuel Reeves has written a profound, refreshing and penetrating book about how faith, mingled with a daring outreach agenda and mixed with a caring disposition, can nurture cross-cultural contacts, interactions and relationships in its search for good news. One church in the U.S. and another faith community in Liberia, both bearing very dissimilar histories, contextual challenges and even social, political and cultural vibes, took the initiative to envision the possible while identifying the common good found when limits are transcended, hearts opened and minds tackled by the working of God. -- Dr. Isaac J. Newton, Former Dean of Students at New Brunswick Theological Seminary and affiliated, as an adjunct professor, with Columbia University, Sam Reeves offers here a hope-filled vision of how two very different communities of faith- a Baptist congregation in African and a Christian Reformed church in Michigan- came together to form a relationship of mutual giving and receiving. We see in this moving account a story of building bridges across oceans and cultures and traditions- bridges of mutual respect, of two-way sharing of resources, and of visits on one another's turf. -- Dr. Dennis Olson, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary
