Our ultimate goal is to have an advisory board representing every possible faith, race, ethnicity we can reach out to, along with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. It is to create a syncretic society.
You will be a part of the movement in shaping the future of America, where every American feels secure about his/her faith, race, ethnicity, culture, or any other uniqueness. At the center for pluralism, we see an alignment of our work with our board of advisors, bringing people together and standing up for the rights of others to create secure societies for every human being.
Dr. Karen Hollie-Thibodeaux
Dr. Karen Hollie-Thibodeaux’s life has been used greatly by God: as a pioneer when He led her to establish Grace International Seminary in 2007; and as a trailblazer when He gave her the vision to plant a church where individuals can reach their greatest potential.
Her commission from God to plant a globally diverse, celebratory church is being fulfilled. It is a church that will empower, enlighten, and encourage the unchurched, alienated, and lost to a life-changing new beginning through teaching, preaching, and evangelism. Upon this premise, Lifeway Church of Dallas was founded with Dr. Hollie-Thibodeaux as the senior pastor.
