Rediscipling the White Church: From Cheap Diversity to True Solidarity

Confronted by the deep-rooted racial injustice in our society, many white Christians instinctively scramble to add diversity to their churches and ministries. But is this form of diversity really the answer to the widespread racial dysfunction we see in the church?

This course outlines how discipleship, not diversity, lies at the heart of our white churches’ racial brokenness. Before white churches can pursue diversity, we must first take steps to address the faulty discipleship that has led to our segregation in the first place. 

In this course we will learn how to rethink our churches’ habits and liturgies to imagine together holistic, communal discipleship practices that can reform us as members of Christ’s diverse body.
