What Will Forward and Ascend Unity?
This Sunday in my church, I will issue a bold call to my church, and perhaps it needs to be made to your church also. I believe when we are making every effort multi-generationally and multi-ethnically, we will forward and ascend unity in every way.
Do we tie our success as a church to continually becoming more multi-generational and more multi-ethnic in a visible way?
Here is where I have come to in my life and in my leadership. The more multi-generational and multi-ethnic we are as a church, the more we are giving our church a future and insuring our church will always be current. I believe the same is true of your church, denomination, or ministry you are part of or may even lead.
When we cease to be a multi-generational ministry, we are giving our future away and soon we will become a ministry of the past.
When we are not multi-ethnic as a ministry, we are irrelevant to our culture, and this will soon result in us becoming a ministry of the past.
Therefore, if we want our ministry to have a future that will always be current in today’s America, we must become more multi-generational and more multi-ethnic.
