Sunday Speaker: Vocab Malone

Understanding the Black Hebrew Israelites

Black Hebrew Israelism is a growing urban alternative spirituality that targets disenfranchised minority groups. Sadly, many families have been disbanded because of its effects. Learn about the practices, beliefs, and history of this group.

Vocab Malone is a member of First Arabic Baptist of Arizona. He holds a Master's from Phoenix Seminary and is a doctoral student at Talbot School of Theology. His primary ministry focus is urban apologetics and worldview analysis of pop culture (especially comic books and superhero films). He has participated in a number of debates and dialogues with Muslims, atheists, and “Hebrew Israelites”. Vocab is an adoptive father who enjoys coffee, ComiCon, baseball, and 80s nostalgia.

Doors open at 9:00 am for optional buffet breakfast ($5 donation) and socializing. Presentation begins at 10:00 am.
