95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #34

A movement for multiracial congregations needs theologians of multiracial Christianity.  Seminaries and Christian colleges must become places where pastors and lay leaders are trained in a theology of oneness and equipped with skills to minister effectively in culturally diverse environments.  Institutions of higher learning, as well as education programs at local congregations, must introduce what has been learned in various cultural settings. Most “Christian education” is Eurocentric in its content and presentation.
