Being the Intercultural People of God — Perspectives from Church Leaders Presentations from the Mission Pastor/Outreach Leader Roundtable

Should our churches be multicultural, or is there a better goal - to be Intercultural? As Canadians there is an obvious push for the church to be diverse because we live in a multicultural society. We also know from Scripture that the body of Christ will be composed of every tribe and tongue in Heaven. However, is there a present imperative for churches to exhibit the diversity we anticipate at the end of time?

Sherman Lau, Gord Schutz and Jorge Lin share about how the church can become the Intercultural People of God while avoiding some of the pitfalls of secular multiculturalism. See the recording below.

Panel Members:

  • Gord Schutz, Lead Pastor, Mountainview Alliance Church, Langley
  • Jorge Lin, Church Planter, Church of All Nations (meeting at New Westminster EFC)
  • Sherman Lau, Mission Central (Manager of Agency Collaboration and Doctor of Intercultural Studies candidate at Western Seminary, Portland)

The Mission Pastor/Outreach Leader Roundtable is a bi-annual meeting. At this meeting we hope that leaders will grow in knowledge of current missional issues, and develop community that will strengthen the body of Christ.
