In this track you'll dive deep into the biblical mandate: the vision, description, and prescription of the Multi-ethnic Church as seen throughout the Bible.

Workshop Schedule

Session A - Tuesday, Nov 5 (10:45a) - Reconciliation and the Mystery of the Gospel (NT) :: Jonathan Seda

This workshop will present the Biblical argument for understanding racial reconciliation as integral to the Gospel by unpacking Paul’s teaching concerning the mystery of the Gospel and focusing primarily on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.

Session B - Tuesday, Nov 5 (1:30p) - How Exclusive People Become the Inclusive People of God (OT) :: Randy Nabors

God called Israel to come out from among them and be separate. Sadly, this gave the nation a sense of superiority and led to ethnocentrism. Come learn why we should and how we can avoid ethnocentrism today.

Session C - Wednesday, Nov 6 (10:45a) - The Biblical Strategy for Oneness and Reconciliation :: Ed Lee

This workshop will focus on biblical foundations for oneness and reconciliation through the cultivation of a new, Christ-centered, cultural identity. Come gain practical suggestions for living in a multi-ethnic Christian community via the local church.

Session D - Wednesday, Nov 6 (1:30p) - Beyond Diversity: the Transcultural Narrative of the Scriptures :: Leonce Crump

The trans-cultural nature of God’s people is evident in both the Old and New Testaments. Is it so evident today? Come learn why the local church must be a trans-cultural community for the sake of the Gospel.
