A RAPID DEMOGRAPHIC SHIFT IS UNDERWAY and the population will be made up entirely of minorities including Hispanic Americans, African Americans, and Asian Americans; and this will reshape the county's religious landscape.

This conference explores how God's people can become more multi-culturally adept. Drawing from cultural and racial histories as well as case-studies of churches and Christian groups that are succeeding in bridging ethnic divides, Dr Soong-Chan Rah provides a practical guidance for Christians wanting to minister more effectively in diverse settings. Conference sessions weave together a tapestry that will provide a clear picture of what "cultural intelligence" requires.

  • For Christians who want to understand and practice cross-cultural intelligence
  • For those seeking to integrate theological, psychological, sociological, and practical information concerning cultural understanding
  • For anyone in cross-cultural ministry, as well as all who wish to engage the new multiethnic America
  • For those who want an understanding of culture that is rooted in Scripture, history, and the practical realities of pastoral ministry
