Your monoethnic church can become a multiethnic, Christ-centered, healthy congregation!

re:MIX: Transitioning Your Church to Living Color is a practical guide for pastors, denominational leaders, and lay leaders who are seeking to transition their monoethnic congregations into healthy multiethnic churches of Christ-centered faith. The book is theologically sound, cross-culturally relevant, and based on field research. It provides transferrable lessons and practices that are applicable in a variety of local church and denominational contexts.

Authors Mark DeYmaz and Bob Whitesel demonstrate that such transitions are not just timely or optional. Indeed, these biblically grounded transitions are necessary for churches pursuing growth and health in an increasingly diverse society. By becoming a church of living color, existing or declining churches present a more credible witness of God’s love for all people and can achieve renewed significance and sustainability.

re:MIX is full of instructive, immediately useful information in a clear and easy-to-use format and includes sidebar stories from church leaders in a variety of denominations who have transitioned their congregations to living color.

“Wow! This is the practical tool for the church that I have been waiting for. Pentecost didn’t occur until the diversity of ‘every nation under heaven’ was present. This book will become recommended reading for all of my seminary students.”

—Mike Slaughter, pastor, author, speaker, and activist

“Mark DeYmaz and Bob Whitesel give important on-ramps to the core questions How do we do this? and Can we actually do this effectively? The mystery of transitioning a monocultural church into a thriving one is dispelled as they lay out real steps and creative ideas for leaders in any church, any size, and in any environment who have the courage to be change-agents.”

Nikki Lerner, Worship Director, Bridgeway Community Church, Columbia, MD; author, Worship Together in Your Church as in Heaven, from Abingdon Press
