Abstract

The ideas and activities for doing multicultural evangelism developed in this dissertation is intended to provide the reader with a model which could be used to bring people together from diverse backgrounds and experiences as a beginning point in developing prospects and partners for new church development. This model is offered as an example, not a standard for doing multicultural evangelism.

The model for ministry will be presented in several stages: planning phase, execution phase, reflection/evaluation phase, comparative model phase, and the contributing social/spiritual factor phase. Attention will be given to the context and motivation for doing this project.

This model is being offered as a resource for those who feel led to do multicultural evangelism as well as those who are interested in studying evangelistic methods. Finally, this model is being offered for those who have an interest in the area of racial reconciliation and who are seeking new ways to create a sense of community among diverse people.
