Ethnic Blends: Mixing Diversity into Your Local Church Publisher's Summary

"The local church today stands poised to experience what could be the 21st century's new Reformation: the rise of multi-ethnic churches. Increasingly, church leaders are now recognizing the intrinsic power and beauty of the multi-ethnic church. Yet more than a good idea, it's a biblical, first-century standard with far-reaching evangelistic potential.

But in a Christian culture where distinctions so often and otherwise divide, how can you and your congregation overcome the obstacles in order to become a healthy, fruitful multi-ethnic church of faith? And why should you even try? In Ethnic Blends, multi-ethnic church pioneer Mark DeYmaz provides an up-close and personal look at seven common challenges to mixing diversity into your local church. Through real-life stories and practical illustrations, DeYmaz shows how to overcome the obstacles in order to build a healthy multi-ethnic church. He also includes the insights of other effective, multi-ethnic local church pastors from around the country.

    Dangerous churches should be norm. Church leaders and church people alike shrink back from danger because we want safety. Jesus said that he's overcome the world and its troubles. Dangerous churches put everything on the line for the one thing that matters most: reaching lost people.It's dangerous not to be a dangerous church. The book is less about methods or even the message of God, but about a church that risks everything it has to reach lost people.
