R&P – The “Browning” of American Megachurches

„If white evangelical churches become more diverse and start to incorporate more non-white leaders, we may also begin to see some changes in the social and political outlooks of conservative white Americans. We have learned that Donald Trump won the presidency in part due to the strong support of white evangelicals. We have also been told that the anti-immigrant sentiment coursing through the United States provided a major impetus to the support for Trump. However, if megachurches are spearheading active outreach attempts to immigrants, it is possible that some white evangelicals may come to perceive a contradiction between the mandate to welcome immigrants into their congregation and anti-immigrant mobilizing. Perhaps, in turn, these changes could herald another seismic shift in American politics.”
