CITY OF GOD is an ongoing documentary project which celebrates the immigrant church in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts.  As a gateway city with over seventy nations represented,  Lynn is  filled with God, faith, and lots of churches.  This project is funded through a pastoral study grant from the Louisville Institute and includes an advisory group of faith leaders from the city.  

Several portfolios are in development and include "Sacred Places" which catalogs the architecture of various ethnic congregations and "Public Faith" which documents personal expressions of faith found in Lynn.   Future portfolios include  a communal photovoice project called "We Gather Together" and  also "World Leaders"  which will include both the portraits and personal stories of many of the spiritual leaders here in the city.  You can follow the project on Instagram.
