Overview

The world is becoming increasingly diverse. More and more of our neighbors are from a variety of cultures, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. But most churches are still culturally homogenous and do not represent every tribe and tongue. What can we do to minister more effectively to our multicultural society? David Anderson and Margarita Cabellon bring together an experienced team of practitioners to share best practices for multicultural ministry. First they lay out the biblical rationale for multicultural community as God's vision for his people. Then key leaders share personal journeys and practical ideas for multicultural leadership development, worship, children's ministry, outreach and much more. Drawing on the pioneering expertise of Bridgeway Community Church and BridgeLeader Network, the contributors present a holistic and multifaceted portrait of what a dynamic, grace-filled and diverse ministry can look like. Our tribalized world is crying out for healing. Discover how you can minister to others as agents of God's reconciliation and hope.

What People are Saying About This

Dr. Mark DeYmaz

"Dr. David Anderson and his staff have put together a wonderful resource addressing growing interest in the multiethnic church, and the need for practical tools to bring it about. The men and women contributing to this work are not mere philosophers; they are competent practitioners who have not only lived the dream, but can help you build a healthy multiethnic church through their collective voice and experiential wisdom."
Dr. Mark DeYmaz, founding pastor and directional leader, Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas

Leonard Sweet

"One of the best-kept secrets in the church today is the rise of the multicultural church. This book will become a landmark text in that story of God's multicultural mission. The secret is now out."
Leonard Sweet, Drew Theological School, George Fox University, sermons.com

George Yancey

"Wow. This book is a great help to multiracial ministry. Anderson and Cabellon provide valuable lessons from one of the most successful multiracial churches in the country. Their practical advice and inspirational encouragement are certain to be used for many years to come. I encourage anyone who is starting a multiracial congregation or is working with a multiracial congregation to take advantage of this tremendous work."
