Interview: D.A. Horton Gets ‘Intensional’ About Ethnic Conciliation, Transparent About Embracing His Own Identity

D.A. Horton is pastor of Reach Fellowship in Long Beach, California, and an assistant professor of Intercultural Studies at California Baptist University. Horton is also a highly-sought after speaker, partly because of some of the topics he writes about in his latest book, Intensional: Kingdom Ethnicity in a Divided World.

In Intensional, Horton takes the position that with all the confusion, hostility, and mistrust impacting conversations related to race, ethnicity, and culture, it is the responsibility of Christians in particular to stand up and offer hopeful solutions. As it states on the back of Intensional: “The people of God are the only humans who have experienced true reconciliation. Who better to enter the ethnic tensions of our day with hope?”

In a conversation conducted via Skype video with Faithfully Magazine, Horton discusses several themes related to his book, including why he prefers to use the terms “ethnic conciliation” and “Kingdom ethnicity,” what compels him as a Christian of color to remain in White Evangelical spaces, how he came to embrace his identity as a Mexican Choctaw American, and more. The transcript has been edited for clarity and brevity.
