  1. 1. Mosaix WHO? a global network of like-minded pastors and churches, church planters, researchers, educators and ministry leaders.

  2. 2. Charting The Movement Forerunner Stage 2000 60s Promise Keepers (1990s) Divided By Faith Published Pioneer Stage Sociology Theology Commitments Obstacles Models 2020 Early Adopter Stage 20% of churches 20% diverse Mainstreamed 50% of churches 50% diverse 2050
  3. 3. Mosaix In 1998, a national study of American congregations found that just 5% of Protestant churches were racially diverse (no one racial group is 80% or more of the congregation). No differences existed between large churches (1000 or more attenders) and other churches. When this same study was conducted in 2007, a major change was revealed. Large Protestant churches were three times more likely to be multiracial in 2007 than in 1998. And if we focus just on evangelical churches, large congregations were five times more likely in 2007 than in 1998 to be multiracial. This is seismic change in such a short time. These changes have come about do to a spiritual movement that has emerged and is discussed in Ethnic Blends . Large churches typically are the bellwether of change to come throughout Christendom. More change, then, is coming. An old system is crumbling, and a new one—the multiracial congregation—is emerging. Michael Emerson
