Crossing the Ethnic Divide: The Multiethnic Church on a Mission

Garces-Foley, Kathleen



It is commonly accepted that the way to build church growth is to target specific ethnic or racial groups. People prefer to worship with their own, the theory goes, and if growth is what you want you have to accept that fact. In this book, Kathleen Garces-Foley challenges the accepted wisdom and puts forth an alternative hypothesis about the role of a multicultural ideology in integrating a range of ethnic and generational groups. Through the story of one Asian-American-led multiethnic congregation in Southern California, Evergreen Baptist Church, she seeks to understand how the multiethnic church works as a new and unique social institution.
