New York is undoubtedly one of the most diverse cities on the planet, and yet with the thousands of cultures coexisting in this city of 8 million people, most New Yorkers live fairly homogeneous lives. As the church, we are called to be ambassadors of reconciliation, reflecting the rich diversity of the Kingdom and reaching out in love to our neighbors. And yet it remains that Sunday mornings are some of the most segregated hours in America. How can we as contemporary Christians working toward the common good of our city, act as Christ-like bridge-builders, understanding the unique cultural heritage and felt needs of various ethnic groups while linking together disparate communities across the five boroughs?
Join us on November 18th as we welcome diversity expert Pastor Bryan Loritts as he helps outline a biblical foundation for multiculturalism. Then he'll share from his decades of experience guiding churches in racial reconciliation as he describes what kind of leaders we need in place in order to develop multi-ethnic communities.
Bryan Loritts currently serves as the Lead Pastor of Fellowship Memphis, a multicultural church ministering to the evolving community of urban Memphis. He was recently voted as one of the top thirty emerging Christian leaders in the country by Outreach Magazine. Loritts is the author of the books God on Paper and A Cross-Shaped Gospel as well as a contributing author for the book entitled Great Preaching.
