Publisher's Description

Many churches aspire to be more culturally diverse-but they find that they have no idea how to approach that goal practically. This book addresses that problem with ten ways churches can truly engage and welcome other cultures.

In 2014 Douglas Brouwer, a seasoned American pastor, took on the unique challenge of serving a multiethnic, multiracial, multicultural church in one of Europe's largest cities. In this book Brouwer distills the lessons he has learned from that experience into timely wisdom on issues every multicultural church faces, including language barriers, theological differences, and cultural stereotypes. Honestly recounting his own questions and challenges in multicultural ministry, Brouwer shows how churches everywhere can adjust their attitudes and practices to embrace racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity.

Editorial Reviews

Mark R. Gornik
— City Seminary of New York
"How are we changed by what the Spirit of God is doing in the city? Douglas Brouwer offers a personal story of a pastor beginning to learn from a multicultural congregation, the International Protestant Church of Zürich. An invitation to see anew in ministry."

Luke A. Powery
— Duke University
"In an age when diversity can be demonized, Doug Brouwer reveals its beauty as the heart of the gospel and the embodiment of the kingdom of God on earth. Through his rich pastoral experience, particularly at the beloved IPC, he reveals the joys, frustrations, and gifts that emerge in a multicultural congregation. He is an honest, seasoned, and wise guide who will fill readers with the hope that Pentecost is still possible today."

Wesley Granberg-Michaelson
— (from the foreword)
"This book is not some ’how to’ manual for tinkering with congregational life but, rather, a survival guide for congregational witness in today’s world."
