I Want A Racially Diverse Church

Church leaders ask me frequently about how to have a racially diverse church. In 2009, I have been invited to a conference to speak on this very issue. It is a passion of mine. Here are some things that I have discovered:

1. In your prayer time, let God burn a deep desire for diversity.

2. Develop a hate for what God hates: DISUNITY, RACISM, DIVISION!

3. Don't tolerate racism and division. If you do, it will become the norm, and you'll start to justify it and actually think it's ok.

4. Put together a racially diverse Leadership Team.

5. Put together a racially diverse worship and platform team. People want to see themselves represented on the stage and leadership.

More on Tuesday!
