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.

Small Group Study 

An eight-week journey toward unity in your church.

This powerful resource is a proven catalyst to help transform the minds, attitudes, and actions of people in your local church, and lead them to enthusiastically embrace one another in the midst of cultural change. Structured around eight weeks of daily readings and thought-provoking questions, this attractive and accessible workbook is a Christ-centered, biblically accurate guide that facilitates authentic personal exploration and small group discussion of race, class, and culture. As the centerpiece tool of the Mosaix Global Network, this book brings diverse people together beyond the distinctions of this world that so often and otherwise divide. It all begins with a conversation.

The first daily devotional and small group study on multiethnic life and church for people in the pews!

What it is:

  • An eight-week daily devotional for individuals
  • A small group study curriculum for the entire church
  • The basis of an eight-week sermon series by pastors
  • A pre-launch curriculum for multiethnic church planters seeking to equip and establish their initial core groups
  • Part of a church membership class and/or as a required eight-week small group study for all new members
  • A curriculum for leadership development
  • An eight-week curriculum for jr. and sr. high school students, millennials, and young adults, etc.
  • A requirement for undergraduate or graduate courses focused on cross-cultural competence, social justice, church planting, growth or development, church leadership, missions, etc. to establish a healthy multiethnic and economically diverse church

How to Use:

Seven daily readings (of no more than 250 words) are provided over eight weeks (total of 56) to stimulate personal and missional formation focused on Theology, History, Considerations, Relationships, Communication, Competence, and Biblical Reflection. In the book itself, which doubles as a journal, you’ll respond to 2-3 questions at the end of each reading. Your responses become the basis for small group discussion at the end of each week.

Chip Freed

Chip Freed is the lead pastor at Garfield Memorial UMC (Cleveland, OH), a multi-site ministry with locations in Pepper Pike and South Euclid. Since Chip arrived at Garfield Memorial September 24, 2004, the number of active members in the church has increased from 400 to 1,100. The number of children in children’s ministry has grown ten-fold to 150, and the church became the first live video venue in the East Ohio Conference. The largest ethnic group at Garfield Memorial constitutes only 54% of the congregation, which makes Freed a sought after speaker and workshop leader on the multi-ethnic church movement. His book on the subject, Two Segregated Souls Never Meet God, is in process. A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Freed was a vice president of sales, and then a president and chief executive officer in the corporate world before entering the ministry. Prior to being appointed to Garfield Memorial, he first served Montgomery UMC in Belle Mead, NJ, then Asbury UMC in Elyria before serving as superintendent of the former Mansfield District. Freed is married to his best friend and ministry partner, Terri, and they have three children.
