Commentary by Dr. Whitesel: I have taught hundreds of churches how to become multi-ethnic. And I’ve produced books and scholarly research/papers on how to do this too.
If your church is serious about becoming multiethnic you need someone to coach you. And that’s what I do.
For background why you need a coach, see this article of March 31, 2021 by Wesley Granberg-Michaelson … https://religionnews.com/2021/03/31/behind-gallups-portrait-of-church-decline/ where the author said:
“Sociologists also report that the experience of immigration increases the intensity of whatever religious convictions are held by migrants. They find religious homes in the U.S. within existing congregations and through establishing new ones, often using the facilities of declining churches. Denominations rooted in Africa and Asia now have hundreds of congregations throughout the U.S., which continue to grow. As much as Hispanics have supported Catholicism’s numbers, today there are more Latinx Protestants in the U.S. than Episcopalians.”
