Churches get ready! People from different cultures and races are not only moving to the same neighborhoods, they are also attending the same local churches. The need for pastors to be able to lead diverse congregations is growing. A call is being sounded for laity in such congregations to acquire greater skills to care for one another. This book analyzes the pastorate from a multicultural, multiracial perspective. The book presents the challenges and successes of pastoring different cultures and races, as well as barriers that impede growth and relationships among the laity. Each chapter includes questions for individual consideration or class discussion. For larger groups, a handy guide for leading a seminar on the multicultural, multiracial church is also provided. Both the practitioner who pastors integrated congregations and the congregation experiencing racial and cultural transition will find this book invaluable.
