Ask anything about transitioning to a multi-ethnic church

I got this email from Art Lucero, and with his permission, I’m sharing it with you.

So, you (and your friends) can ask your burning questions about how to transition from a church that’s mostly homogenous into one that’s diversified and has all kinds of people worshipping together.

Dear Friends:

My senior pastor, Dr. Jay Pankratz of Sunrise Church in Rialto, CA would like to help churches deal with some of the questions, issues, and or problems they may be facing as they prepare for, or are in the midst of transitioning from a mono-cultural to a multi-cultural ministry.

Please send me a list of any questions, issues, or problems that you would like to receive some input from a leader who successfully transitioned a traditional white Baptist church of just under 400 (98% White) to a progressive, multi-ethnic and multicultural congregation of 4,000 (30% White, 30% African-American, 30% Hispanic, 4% Asian).

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Your servant

Art Lucero

    What a great service to the church. My first question is 1.) what role music, music style play in the transition?

    2.) What style works best and serves the most diverse group of people?

    3.) How important is it for the leadership to reflect the diversity you desire?

    Thank you again! I look forward to the discussion and answers!
