Why is CrossWind an Intercultural Church?
Intercultural vs Multicultural
In a multicultural group, the focus is on the different cultural backgrounds of the people that were joined together. An intercultural group on the other hand, is formed by people of different cultural backgrounds forged by a common identity with a focus on fulfilling a single mission. “Multicultural” celebrates diversity. “Intercultural” celebrates unity in the midst of diversity.
- Starts with commonality and invites diversity.
- Differences are not highlighted but rather diminished in favor of common ground.
- Members are driven by mission, not cultural background.
- Diversity is a strengthening factor, not a limiting one.
- Defined by an identity and purpose that transcend race and culture.
- S - Seek (Evangelism)(Luke 19:10)
- S - Strengthen (Discipleship and Assimilation)(Acts 14:22)
- S - Send (Missions)(Matthew 10:16, 28:19)
