Crossing the Ethnic Divide

This chapter considers the costs of participating in a multiethnic church and how Evergreeners find meaning in, or at least learn to live with, their discomfort at Evergreen. Pastor Ken has purposely shaped a “culture of discomfort” that imbues the challenges of the multiethnic church with eschatological significance. Yet diversity is more than a burden for Evergreeners, who also enjoy these challenges and find humor in them.

Keywords:   Evergreen Baptist Church, multiethnic church, culture of discomfort, diversity
