Diversity in Evangelical Mission
Scott Moreau and Beth Snodderly

The Church Is Everywhere to Everyone

Reflecting God's Glory Together is a compelling book that sheds light on the diversity and richness of the global mission landscape. It challenges the common misconception that missions is dominated by a small slice of humanity who shares certain demographic, economic, educational, and gender characteristics. Through a collection of case studies, personal perspectives, and social science perspectives, the book paints a composite sketch of the mosaic reality of mission today.

The contributors analyze numerous ways diversity impacts mission, from the engagement of global immigrants to North America to the role of generational diversity in mobilizing efforts. They also delve into the challenges of diversity in teams, exploring how leadership, partnership, and member care need to be rethought in multicultural settings.

The book is also a reminder of the biblical call to Christian unity. The chapters examine how agencies and institutions can grow in diversity and how to balance the reality of ethnic diversity with the call for unity. They also explore the missional challenges for minority populations who face marginalization as part of their heritage. Read Reflecting God's Glory Together if you want to be encouraged to appreciate diversity in mission and engage in God's ongoing redemptive story.
