re:MIX is a practical guide on becoming a healthy multi-ethnic church for pastors, denominational leaders, and leadership teams. Authors Mark DeYmaz and Bob Whitesel show why church leaders should transition their mono-ethnic congregations into healthy multi-ethnic churches of Christ-centered faith. Even more importantly, the authors demonstrate how todo this transitioning. Theologically sound, cross-culturally relevant, and experientially informed, this book provides methods and practices that are reliable and applicable in a variety of local church and denominational contexts.
DeYmaz and Whitesel make a compelling case for why such transition is necessary, no longer optional. They illustrate how this new approach is biblical and pragmatic for any church in our increasingly diverse society. They also present effective models and strategies for creating inclusive, transformative communities of faith, and include sidebar stories from local church pastors in a variety of denominations who have transitioned their own congregations to living color.
When we become congregations of living color, we present a more credible witness of God’s love for all people, and our churches mature beyond survival to renewed significance and sustainability.
