This chapter draws on insights from the sociology of culture, race, and religion to explain the various ways organizations and institutions structure the development of religious, racial, and civic identities. It argues that individuals use the cultural schema from their particular congregations and those from wider American evangelicalism to construct identities with the potential to change the broader institutions they inhabit.
