David Ostendorf is a United Church of Christ Minister serving as Executive Director of the Chicago-based Center for New Community, a national organization building community, justice, and equality. His community-level experience with Christian, Muslim, and Jewish leaders and with congregations on race, religion, and worker justice issues continues to shape the organization’s work.

As settlement of the African Muslim diaspora in the United States continues, Christian leaders should step boldly into this change to create community with Muslim newcomers.
