Not Forsaken DVD

Growing Up Black, Male, and Christian in the Hood
  • By Chris McNair
Product Description

Learn how to engage with inner city African American young men for Christ.

Sometimes we confuse the idea that we are all equal with the idea that we are all the same. Being equal and being alike are two entirely different concepts. Chris McNair has worked with at-risk African American boys in the inner city for over thirty years of ministry. Although all youth may be created equal, he learned that we must discern how to address the social, emotional, physical and spiritual issues facing young black men in order to build a relational ministry. The seven-session study includes a Participant Guide with Leader Helps and a DVD with activities and discussion questions.

The DVD features leadership helps from Chris for use with youth—as well as stories from Chris’ graduates—that can be used in flexible and creative ways in 10-15-minute segments. All videos sessions are closed captioned.


"In the thirty years I have known Rev. Chris McNair, he has always been hanging out with urban black males that no other youth serving organization or ministry seems able to connect with. By building long-term relationships with the most at-risk city youth, McNair engenders trust and creates possibilities for redemption. Part narrative and part training guide, Not Forsaken introduces you to his inspiring and instructive methodology for transformational ministry among urban black males and their families. This is a must read for anyone who cares about the future of our cities."

Curtiss Paul DeYoung, CEO, Minnesota Council of Churches

Chris McNair is a veteran youth worker, urban pastor, and advocate for the empowerment of the marginalized. I consider myself part of the fruit of his labor. Allow this book to equip you to serve as a vehicle of transformation among God's urban children and families.”

Dr. Efrem Smith, Co-Senior Pastor of Bayside Church Midtown and Co-Owner of Influential LLC

I have never read a book that so clearly explains the plight of the African American male but yet navigates a clear path to fulfillment….. in Christ.” “The study guide really does hold your hand and takes you through thoughtful yet challenging issues the young African American males face today with a Scriptural foundation.”

Bruce Morgan, CEO Kids Across America
