Nehamiah Christian Center
Rev. Herbert Davis wipes sweat from his face as he preaches to the attnedees of a joint English and Spanish language service at the Nehemiah Christian Center in Durham, NC. “I believe it’s important to blend Pentecostalism with social justice,” says the Rev. Herbert Davis. That led him to Durham Congregations Associations and Neighborhoods (CAN), where he co-chairs the strategy team. He has become one of the city’s most visible advocates for affordable housing and respectful policing.
