How to Become a Multicultural Church

Author: Douglas J. Brouwer

Reflections from an American pastor on what he has learned leading a multicultural church in Europe

Many churches aspire to be more culturally diverse-but they find that they have no idea how to approach that goal practically. This book addresses that problem with ten ways churches can truly engage and welcome other cultures.

In 2014 Douglas Brouwer, a seasoned American pastor, took on the unique challenge of serving a multi-ethnic, multiracial, multicultural church in one of Europe’s largest cities. In this book Brouwer distils the lessons he has learned from that experience into timely wisdom on issues every multicultural church faces, including language barriers, theological differences, and cultural stereotypes. Honestly recounting his own questions and challenges in multicultural ministry, Brouwer shows how churches everywhere can adjust their attitudes and practices to embrace racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity.
