Black Jesus, Oakhurst Presbyterian, Turns 90

Oakhurst Presbyterian, perhaps the most studied church in Georgia, celebrates its 90th birthday this weekend.

Numerous national publications -– including Time magazine, The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor –- have reported on the church’s dedication to racial diversity. Graduate and theological students have written scholarly papers about Oakhurst Presbyterian and the husband-wife team that leads it, Nibs Stroupe and Caroline Leach.
