Looking for the right person to help move your church, business, or organization toward multiethnicity?
The neighborhood surrounding the Poplar Bible Church and Christian Academy is changing. Gary, the senior pastor, has convinced the church and schools leadership team of the need to be more intentional about becoming multiethnic. He has also convinced the team that becoming multiethnic means hiring the right person to lead these efforts. When Gary reaches out to an old friend, Peter, to lead them through the process of identifying the kind of leader Poplar will need to welcome their new neighbors, the longstanding traditions, values, and perspectives of the team are challenged.
In this timely fable, Bryan Loritts, lead pastor of Fellowship Memphis and president of The Kainos Movement, explores three cultural expressions that exist within every ethnic group. He shows why understanding these cultural expressions is important when looking for the right leader to move your organization toward multiethnicity.
