Abstract
This project assesses the role of the 165 year-old Second Baptist Church of Columbus, Ohio, in politics, education, and religion. It assesses its readiness for neighborhood revitalization, providing guidance for church and community in working together, leveraging federal and state dollars for the common good. It analyzes organizational processes and provides tools for relating to powerbrokers in the community. Historical, biblical, and theological perspectives are interwoven in exploring the complex task of church development. This economic resource model is useful for empowering the inner-city African American church through utilizing public assets and influencing political and social institutions.
