Online: Resources for Multicultural Ministries

The New Culture
From the website: “Our website…has become one of the most visited sites on the internet for Christians seeking Bible-based resources on multi-ethnic topics. It is packed full of free resources and links to over 600 books, articles, movies, Bible studies, online videos, talks, documentary films, and more.  Our monthly New Culture Newsletter helps Christians across the U.S. to stay informed about excellent multi-ethnic resources, conferences, and training opportunities.” Also contains links to e-learning and other trainings for doing multi-cultural ministry.

Unity in Christ
From the website: “The purpose of this e-zine is to equip, inform, and educate our readers on how to serve a multi-ethnic society in a multi-cultural world through the various venues of the body of Christ.” Articles are written from a variety of settings (e.g. theology, academia, church ministry, music ministry, prison ministry, artists, etc.) and focus on a variety of topics relevant to multi-cultural ministry.”

Site Overview

Introduction

By engaging ethnic histories and hearing personal autobiographies we are participating in God's creative work of shaping and reshaping church life and mission.

Part I: Theology and Context

Using the frameworks of practical theology and missional ecclesiology, we provide an introduction to the work of leadership and to social theory, including matters of social contexts, cultural variables, and ethnic identity.

Part II: Sociocultural Perspectives

Cultural anthropology provides insights into social power and human dynamics that vary among cultures. Topics include worldviews, relationships, identity, language, and perception and thinking.

Part III: Leadership, Communication and Change

We need to develop the skills and capacities for communication and leadership in intercultural settings in order to engage the challenges of church life and mission in multicultural contexts.

Resources

We are assembling resources for pastors, professors, and students -- websites, cinema, documentaries, group exercises, books, and Bible studies.
