The body of Christ is beautifully diverse, and many churches want to see that reflected in their congregations.
But simply being in proximity to people of different racial backgrounds doesn’t eliminate racism or automatically produce positive outcomes.
When it comes to loving and serving fellow Christians, God has called us to more than proximity—he’s called us to unity and justice.
That’s why Barna has partnered with Dr. Michael Emerson and the Racial Justice and Unity Center, through a study funded by the Lilly Endowment, to create a new research-driven report called Beyond Diversity.
It’s designed to help leaders better understand the latest opportunities and challenges impacting racial justice in the church.
It will also help you answer important questions for your own ministry, such as:
The data presented in this report help to shed light on some of these questions, offering leaders first steps and actionable insights to help them begin the necessary journey of guiding their community more intentionally toward a future of justice and unity.
Print copies are available for $39 and digital copies are $29.
We encourage you to pick up a copy.
