“Through our own experiences (and mistakes) and work with Christians around the country, we have found that there are several common pitfalls that often trip people up with their efforts to build healthy multi-ethnic churches, campuses, and organizations. The pitfalls we will address: 1. Ethnic unity is a distraction from evangelism and discipleship. 2. Our goal is to be welcoming and allow unity to happen naturally. 3. Ethnic unity isn’t an issue in our post-racial society. 4. Everyone should be treated equally. We examine these pitfalls and discuss alternative, biblical approaches that lead to unity rather than division and frustration.”
