Ministry in Multiethnic Contexts addresses the challenges of cross-cultural ministry in both theological and practical ways. As demographics in America change, Christianity in America changes. This course prepares American Christians to understand and serve cultures who have historically been excluded, bringing healing to the divisions that history has seen.
