The following is a statement by Pastor Robbie Bankens:
My wife and I pastor a young, Multi-Cultural Church in Petal, Abundant Grace of Petal, which we started just a few short years ago. I came to Petal several years ago with the vision of starting a Church that promotes and produces Racial Harmony and Healing and would actually work to completely dissolve all Racial Lines and Barriers. Jesus died for the Human Race and that should be the only "Race" that counts.
Without telling his story here, which I could never do, I will simply say that the Lord miraculously changed his life and delivered him for this horrible hatred and filled him with the Love of God for all people. Today he preaches and teaches a message of Racial Reconciliation and he's coming to Petal to share his story and to minister to people of every walk of life.
