Making Disciples in Diverse Communities


Our nation is becoming increasingly diverse in its urban, suburban, and rural regions. However, the church struggles to make disciples and minister in a way that reflects this growing reality. In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Efrem Smith challenges the church to rise up to the wonderful opportunity to create multi-ethnic churches that reflect the beautiful diversity of the coming kingdom of God.
