A Black Lives Matter activist and Christian minister is starting a new denomination with the purpose of spreading the gospel in a way that addresses “black suffering,” according to The Christian Post.

Who is the founder?

Jomo Kenyatta Johnson is a minister from Savannah, Georgia.

He has a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies from Beacon University and a Master of Divinity from Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia.

What’s the denomination about?

Johnson’s denomination will be called Church for Black Men.

Some of the unique tenets of the denomination include:

  • The denomination will never collect tithes and offerings, to avoid perceptions of greed.
  • They will not be a tax-exempt organization, so that the church can endorse or speak out against political candidates.
  • The church will “unapologetically address issues of black suffering,” which Johnson says haven’t been “properly translated in corporate church culture.”
