A healthy multiethnic church is one in which people of diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds will themselves to:
Walk, work, and worship God together as one to advance a credible witness of God’s love for all people;
Recognize, renew, reconcile, and redeem broken relationships, both interpersonal and collective;
Establish equitable systems of responsible authority, leadership, governance, and accountability within the congregation;
Advocate and advance justice, mercy, and compassionate work in the community;
Embrace the tension of sound theological reflection and applicational relevance in an increasingly complex and intersectional society for the sake of the Gospel.
Mark’s passion for church leaders in our districts have challenged cohort participants to transition their congregations into healthy multiethnic and economically diverse faith communities, and to thoughtfully engage the systemic challenges of surrounding communities by pressing into spiritual, social justice, and economic realities and lead people beyond the church walls to Christ.
