The United States is rapidly becoming multiethnic. Within ten years we will probably no longer have a majority race. Every facet of our American culture is transitioning to multiethnic . . . except the church. The church remains the most segregated institution in America. It will take multiethnic churches to reach a multiethnic America.
So how can your church transform into a gospel-centered, mission-shaped, multiethnic local church?
In The High-Definition Leader author, Derwin Gray, issues an invitation for church leaders to help their congregations embrace Christ’s call to the early church—a call that crosses ethnic and socioeconomic barriers to create heavenly colonies of love, reconciliation, and unity.
THE HIGH-DEFINITION LEADER WILL HELP READERS . . .
- understand that planting and transforming churches into multiethnic groups is a biblical calling church leaders must encourage
- identify and implement the best practices to help leaders build multiethnic churches
- recognize that reconciliation between ethnic groups in the church is not just a social issue
- but a theological issue church leaders cannot ignore
The apostle Paul built multiethnic, socioeconomic diverse local churches of Jews and Gentiles. We must follow his godly wisdom and leadership if we want to be the church for which Christ died.
“Red and yellow, black and white— They are precious in his sight.”
