In another Shepherd in Action interview focused on racial injustice, we interviewed Alex Mathew. Alex is a husband, father of three young boys, and executive director at Youth for Christ in Kansas City. He formerly worked in the Juvenile Justice realm of ministry. Alex encourages other shepherd leaders to adapt a "missionary mindset" and to build relationships with a new awareness and understanding of words that can be polarizing and toxic to others.

Alex Mathew references this picture from his office during the interview. It is called “The Prodigal."
