Dr. Marvin McMickle is Pulpit & Politics, which seeks to provoke an emergence of a new generation of black preacher-politicians who will move beyond spiritual leadership and into advocacy and social justice. Dr. McMickle argues for the vital role of the preacher, not only in the pulpit but in serving the community and challenging the government, from within or without.
