How to Form Fresh Expressions of Church that Reach Across Cultures


Category: Tags: ,


Featuring Iosmar Alvarez and Evelyn Sekajipo

Fresh expressions of church are new forms of church specifically designed for those outside existing churches.

Since so many churches can be culturally homogeneous, one of the biggest opportunities for local churches is to start fresh expressions for people from different cultures.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to identify the other cultures near you that God might be sending you to
  • How to avoid natural biases that inhibit cross-cultural work
  • How to work with leaders from a different culture
