Presenter: Rev. John Fanestil, Ph.D.
When John Fanestil graduated from La Jolla High School in 1979, some 70 percent of San Diegans were of European descent. Today that figure is less than 50 percent, and San Diego has become a “majority minority” community. Exploring the latest statistics from the U.S. Census, Rev. Fanestil will examine how many different population flows have changed – and are continuing to change – the complexion of San Diego. He will also consider the latest trends and forecasts, and explore the implications for “mainline” Protestant congregations.
John Fanestil is the Pastor of Faith Cultivation and Leadership Development at First UMC San Diego. He recently completed his Ph.D. in the History Department at the University of Southern California.
