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.

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
