The Multiethnic Church in Society
This chapter speculates on the future development of multiethnic churches by looking at the factors that propelled Evergreen Baptist Church to its new identity. It is argued that the new Evergreen reflects changing American attitudes toward diversity and a shift toward local engagement within evangelicalism. It is predicted that young adults will continue to play a pivotal role in the success of multiethnic churches. Lastly, after arguing throughout this volume for the influence of society on the development of multiethnic churches, the potential significance of multiethnic churches for societal race relations in light of the Evergreen case study is considered.
