        Dan took that small ministry of sixteen people and nurtured it into the largest multicultural church on the south side of Chicago, consisting of over five thousand members. Today, Dan still serves as senior pastor of The Lighthouse Church of All Nations, in Alsip, : Whitaker House. This would be a good book for members of a church board to read if they feel God calling them to develop a multicultural ministry. Willis' experience would give a good foundation for discussion and planning. I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. My comments are an independent and honest review.

Author: Dan Willis. Genre: RELIGION / Christian Church/Growth. Release Date: Febru   "The Multicultural Church" by Dan Willis is a really short book. It took me just thirty minutes to read it. It isn't what I thought it was gonna to be, I thought it was going to be like reading a boring textbook, but I was wrong. It was more like an autobiography about what the author does in his church, a church Chicago, Illinois.

        Being eschatological and spiritual, the church considered in itself is already radically multicultural, for its spiritual members span the entire globe. Every Lord’s Day, Christians from across the globe commune with each other spiritually as fellow members of the one holy catholic church. Rayners Lane Baptist Church (RLBC) is a multi-cultural church in a suburban multi-cultural area. Last time we counted, we had 40 different nationalities present on a Sunday. The most common are white British, Tamil (Indian and Sri Lankan), African, and Caribbean.

A church is not primarily responsible for how multicultural its neighborhood is, but it is responsible for how kingdom-minded it is.

So what does it look like to make a healthy cultural shift away. However, I think multicultural transition is a better choice, either in one multicultural congregation (option 2) or in multiple congregations in one facility or (even better) one church (option 3).

With that in mind, let me conclude with some thoughts that are applicable to both options 2 and 3. My first church was a multicultural (or as some say, multi-ethnic) church, though we were not thinking in those categories.

We just reached our poor neighborhood. My church today would not fit the.

This article assesses the strengths and weaknesses of different multicultural church models. Daniel Sanchez offered some of the earliest depictions of such models, but 35 years later they beg to be updated.

And despite the proliferation of books on the topic, no significant updating or additions to Sanchez’s categories have been offered other than the Sider et. al. partnership model.In this book Brouwer distills the lessons he has learned from that experience into timely wisdom on issues every multicultural church faces, including language barriers, theological differences, and cultural stereotypes.
