Cultivating Intercultural Leadership for Diversity-Oriented Churches

Facilitator: A Brian Leander Ph.D.

Despite the decline in mainline protestant church membership in the United States and Canada over the past decades, diversity-oriented churches are growing. Churches that are intentional about diversity use the terms “multiracial,” “multiethnic,” or “multicultural” when discussing their mission.
Church leadership in the 21st century requires more and more attention to diversity and inclusion at every level. As a result, many leaders today are looking for effective ways to promote shared understanding between people with different values, experiences, practices, identities and cultures. In addition, church leaders are looking for ways to carry forward the mission of Christ in diverse communities.
